The abortion rate
was highest for women at the age of 22 (at 27.
has declined significantly in recent years.
The latest annual report, which incorporated data from 47 states, showed the abortion rate
in 2013 was half of 25 recorded in 1980.
The abortions that married women reported were used to calculate three types of abortion measures: age-specific abortion rates
(number of abortions per 1,000 woman-years in a five-year age group), the total abortion rate
(number of abortions a woman is expected to have during her lifetime if current age-specific rates persist) and the annual general abortion rate
(number of abortions annually per 1,000 women aged 15-49).
Thus, it is unlikely that the overall aggregate state abortion rate
will be affected substantially by the mobility factor, and the use of abortion data by occurrence is acceptable.
Global data finds that the level of contraceptive use or contraceptive availability has little impact on either the abortion rate
, the unintended pregnancy rate, or the fertility rate.
COVENTRY has the second highest abortion rates
anywhere in the country outside of London.
In contrast, the abortion rate
increased by 8% among women aged 40 years and older, indicating that unintended pregnancy continues to be a problem throughout women's reproductive years.
The percentage was one of the highest abortion rates
in the country and was 7% higher than England's average.
According to the report, the abortion rate
dropped to 16.
From 1974, when Statistics Canada first began disseminating teen pregnancy data, to 1999, the combined birth and abortion rate
per 1,000 women aged 15 to 19 fell from 49.
Following a period of substantial decline, the global abortion rate
has stalled, and the number of unsafe abortions continues to rise, a recent study found.
After nearly a decade of steady decreases in abortion, the global abortion rate
has leveled off, according to new research from the World Health Organization and the Guttmacher Institute.
The authors, whose findings are based on national surveys, official statistics and hospital records, wrote: "The substantial decline in the abortion rate
observed earlier has stalled, and the proportion of all abortions that are unsafe has increased.
They concluded that while the abortion rate
had fallen since 1995, that drop had now levelled off, and overall, the rise in world population meant that there were 2.
