Abstract: Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between socioeconomic development and knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of family planning in India. This study tests the following major hypothesis: The higher the level of socioeconomic development, the more extensive the KAP of family planning will be among the states of India. The study applies correlation and multiple regression analysis of dëta from the National Family Health Survey (NFHS), India: 1998-1999 using level of development to predict three major categories (KAP) of family planning. The findings support the hypothesis in large measure, revealing that the overall socioeconomic development is directlv related to the KAP of family planning among the states of India.
