The oft-quoted statistic that "98 percent of Catholic women use birth control" is problematic for many reasons. For starters, the study that this statistic was pulled from was restricted to:

(A) women who had sex in the three months prior to the survey

(B) women at risk for unintended pregnancy, defined as those who had sex in the three months prior to the survey and were not pregnant, postpartum or trying to get pregnant
