A cross- sectional survey of utilization of child immunization and family planning services was carried out in a systematic random sample of 100 families from a Muslim slum community of Calcutta. 15.6% of children (1-4 years) were fully immunized (DPT, OPV & BCG). Couple protection rate was 28.4%. But interestingly, the proportion of protected eligible couples in single families (32.8%) was significantly higher than in joint families (11.6%).
