This database reflects a great amount of work by several individuals, organizations, and working groups over the past decade in monitoring and evaluating family planning/reproductive health programs in developing countries.

USAID provided the support for this database under the MEASURE Evaluation Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) project through Cooperative Agreement GHA-A-00-08-00003-00 and implemented by the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  We wish to acknowledge Jacob Adetunji and Rachel Lucas, USAID  technical advisors to MEASURE Evaluation PRH, for their guidance throughout this process. The database was updated in 2017.

The main author of this database is Bridgit Adamou with Eilene Bisgrove as the Senior Technical Advisor and collaborating writer. Janine Barden-O'Fallon, MEASURE Evaluation PRH Project Director, provided technical assistance and oversight. We thank Ed Van Duinen, Yi Liu, and Billy Saelim for the web development and Julie Mohlman for data entry.

We would like to acknowledge the contributors to this database, including the original authors of the Compendium of Indicators for Evaluating Reproductive Health Programs (2002), Jane Bertrand and Gabriela Escuedero, and those that contributed to the Compendium. Additionally, we wish to acknowledge, alphabetically, the following individuals who contributed to the content in this database:
