Abstract: This study investigated adults' awareness level and perception of family planning among adults in selected Local Government Areas of Ekiti State, Nigeria. Specifically, the study sought the level of awareness and perception of adults on family planning. Descriptive research design of the survey type was adopted for this study. The target population for this study consisted of all adults in E kiti State (Male and Female) while the sample consisted of 552 adults (Male and Female) using multistage sampling procedure. The instrument used to collect the data was a questionnaire titled Adults' Awareness and Perception of Family Planning (AAPFP). Face and content validity of the instrument was determined by experts in Social Studies, Tests, Measurement and Evaluation and Family Planning Unit. The reliability of the instrument was established using test-retest and a reliability coefficient of 0.85 was obtained and this was considered high enough to be reliable. Two research questions were raised for the study. The data generated were analysed using Percentages, Mean and Standard Deviation. The study found that the level of awareness of family planning among adults in Ekiti State, Nigeria was moderate. The study also showed that adults' perception of family planning varied based on the meaning, need, benefits, methods and side effects of family planning
Description: Family planning can be described as a means by which couples and individuals ensure they do not raise more children than they could adequately take care of with available scarce resources to attain set goals. The aim can be effectively achieved when individuals and couples use family planning methods to time, in order to space and limit giving birth. This has made many to possibly see family planning as birth control method. Ajmera (2017) believed that family planning is synonymously used for birth control. Family planning has also been explained in terms of its objective and significance.
