Abstract

The study utilized a descriptive non-experimental type of research. Respondents of the study were composed of 200 married men who utilize any methods in family planning chosen using purposive and convenience sampling techniques. The research instrument used was self-made questionnaire, except for the Part 1 which was adapted and modified from the study of Carni et al. (2002). Data was subjected to statistical treatments such as frequency, mean, t-test for independent means and f-test or one-way ANOVA. The study concluded that, 1) Most respondents of the study belonged to the 26-33 years old group, Roman, Catholics, had reached college level, employed, have employed wives, have 1-2 children, and have a family income of P10,000.00 and below; 2) The respondents have a high level of participation in family planning; 3) Age, religion and paternal employment were not determinants in the level of participation of the respondents. Educational attainment, maternal employment, number of children, and family income were the significant determinants in the level of participation of the respondents. This implies that age, religion and paternal employment do not affect or influence the husband’s participation in family planning. On the other hand, educational attainment, maternal employment, number of children, and family income were the significant determinants in the level of participation of the respondents. Therefore, the researchers concluded that these variables directly affect the way respondents view family planning as well as the extent of their participation.
