  • Some figures for 2002-2010 (indicated by *) are incomplete.
  • Estimated abortions for 2009-2012 are the compiler's estimates based on partial state reporting.
  • Figures or abortions by residents are based on data from different sources and are not a consistent time series.
  • Parenthetical figures are estimates, some of which are derived from reported data.
  • Abortion ratios, percentages, and rates may be based on a mix of data from different sources and thus may not represent a consistent time series.
