Reported Induced Abortions

The statistical report available from the link below presents summary tables of information collected through the Wisconsin Induced Abortion Reporting System, established under section 69.186, Wisconsin Statutes. Since January 1, 1987, medical facilities in Wisconsin have been required to report selected information on patients who obtained induced abortions.

The report summarizes data for the most recent calendar year, trend information for the most recent five-year period, and three-year annual average information by county. The tables categorize reported induced abortions by patient age, educational attainment, marital status, race/ethnicity, and county of residence; by an estimate of gestational age; and by reported complications.

The data are occurrence-based, consisting of reports on induced abortions performed in Wisconsin for both residents and non-residents.

This annual publication represents the only published data from this reporting system; no data requests are accepted.
