A mass vasectomy campaign was held at Monghyr and Muzaffarpur districts in Bihar state. 458 vasectomy acceptors were interviewed to determine sociodemographic characteristics. The camp facilities were mostly used by the poorer segment of society. 92.4% were Hindus and 7.6% Muslims. The average age was 39.2 years for males and 33.9 years for their wives. Moreover, the acceptors usually had 4 children, including both sons and daughters. Hydrocele and old age were the 2 main reasons for rejection of men who registered.
