This survey was a probability sample of all women ages 15-44. A multistage cluster sample was drawn whereby enumeration districts were selected with probability of selection proportionate to their size. Only one eligible woman was interviewed per household, and a total of 963 women were interviewed. The survey covered contraceptive awareness, contraceptive use, and family planning programs.

The International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region published a report on the survey titled Contraceptive Prevalence in Dominica, the eighth in a series titled IPPF/WHR Caribbean Contraceptive Prevalence Surveys. Some libraries may be able to procure this report through the interlibrary loan system.
