Notes: Reporting for abortions is incomplete; reported abortions include only Medicare abortions, and these figures are incomplete for 2010-2011. Medicare abortions are estimated from reported totals for pairs of states/territories. Abortion figures are for calendar years, some figures are interpolated from fiscal year figures.
