  • Bayer Impact of unplanned pregnancies on local authority budgets cost calculator, April 2018. Bayer’s modelling calculator is intended to help local authorities better understand the public sector spend – beyond healthcare costs – of unplanned live births. Bayer’s calculator brings together Office for National Statistics data, the findings of the third National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal-3), and the Family Planning Association’s 2015 report Unprotected Nation to provide conservative estimates of education, welfare and housing expenditure for upper and single tier local authorities. With public health budgets under significant pressure, the calculator uses a robust and very conservative methodology to demonstrate that investing in contraception is highly cost-effective, even when NHS spending is excluded. A short note setting out the methodology used in the tool is available to read here. Guidelines on using the tool are available here and introductory slides are also available to download here.
