Annual submission of the Family Planning Annual Report (FPAR) is required of all Title X family planning providers for purposes of monitoring and reporting program performance (45 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Part 742 and 45 CFR Part 923). FPAR data are presented in summary form, which protects the confidentiality of individuals who receive Title X-funded services (42 CFR Part 59). The FPAR is the only source of annual, uniform reporting by all Title X family planning services grantees. It provides consistent, national-level data on the Title X Family Planning Program and its users.
FPAR data can be used to answer questions about the following:
- Whether populations served fall under the umbrella of priority populations
- Contraceptive coverage and service utilization among priority populations
- Composition of revenues
