Among women with no previous children, there were very few abortions, with a slight increase during the period 1995-2000 when the abortion ratio
Recall, however, that the abortion ratio
model for adolescents to older teens produces a larger point estimate of the law's effect on adolescent abortion rates than does the adolescents to adult abortion ratio
model under the assumption of no spill-over effects.
* Guttmacher says there were 18.8 abortions for every 100 pregnancies ending in live birth or abortion in 2014, an abortion ratio
lower than any since 1972.
Mahesh Puri and colleagues calculated an abortion rate of 42 per 1,000 women aged 15-49, an abortion ratio
of 56 per 100 live births and a complication treatment rate of eight cases per 1,000 women.
This measure, the abortion ratio

The abortion ratio
shows variation across subgroups in the probability that, once pregnant, women will choose abortion.
The general fertility rate is 75 live births per 1,000 women aged 15-44; the abortion ratio
is 400 abortions per 1,000 live births (bottom panel, cols.
The abortion rate was 42 per 1,000 women aged 15-49, and the abortion ratio
was 56 per 100 live births.
We calculated age-specific abortion rates (the number of abortions per 1,000 women in each five-year age-group), the general abortion rate (the number of abortions annually per 1,000 women aged 15-44), the total abortion rate (the number of abortions a woman would be expected to have over a lifetime at current age-specific rates) and the abortion ratio
(the number of abortions per 100 live births) for each country.
The annual unsafe abortion ratio
was estimated after adjustment for under-reporting.
The CDC's most recent abortion ratio
showed that there were 188 abortions for every thousand lives births in 2015.
