The paper directs itself to the measurement of the impact of the Kenyan Family Planning Program in 1971. Existing measures are felt to be inadequate, but using these and data made available from a survey of family planning clients alternative and arguably superior measures are quantified. The data is presented on a district by district basis; great disparity in impact is readily apparent. These variations see to some considerable degree explained by differences in program inputs, however, so no conclusions about relatively more or less 'successful' districts can be drawn. Discussion of this last point will be taken up in a later paper.
