Statistics, Surveillance, and Reports

  • Guttmacher - Facts on Induced Abortion in the United States
    Providing multiple statistics on the women who have abortions, the risks associated with aboritions, and the policies made on abortion, this page is both comprehensive and a way of disproving certain myths about abortions.
  • Guttmacher - State Facts About Abortion
    Breaks down 30 years of abortion statistics by state and compares them to national averages.
  • Abortion Surveillance - United States, 2009
    Each year, CDC requests abortion data from the central health agencies of 52 reporting areas (the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and New York City).
  • World Health Organization | Unsafe Abortion
    An estimated 21.6 million unsafe abortions took place worldwide in 2008, almost all in developing countries. These unsafe abortions are carried out by untrained persons under poor hygiene conditions. Deaths due to unsafe abortion remain close to 13% of all maternal deaths.
  • The World's Abortion Laws: Home
    Since 1998, the Center for Reproductive Rights has produced The World's Abortion Laws map to visually compare the legal status of induced abortion in different countries-and to advocate for greater progress in ensuring access to safe and legal abortion services for all women worldwide.
