Abortion rates in England in 1995: comparative study of data from district health authorities.

Abstract:

:Lifetime fertility, abortion rates, and the proportion of pregnancies resulting in induced abortion were investigated in 105 district health authorities in England. In 1995, a total of 147,851 abortions occurred among women living in England, compared with 613,257 live births; a ratio of 1:4. This was equivalent to a total period fertility rate of 1.72 births and a total period abortion rate of 0.44 abortions over a woman's lifetime. Total period fertility rates showed a 1.8-fold variation (1.26-2.32) and total period abortion rates demonstrated a 4.2-fold variation (0.26-1.09) between district health authorities. Extrapolation of the 1995 data suggest that, in England, a woman will have an average of 2.16 pregnancies during her lifetime, of which 0.44 (20.4%) will be aborted. About 20% of abortions occur in women under 20 years of age.
