New induced abortion data dashboard
The Center for Health Statistics has launched a new public data dashboard on abortion and pregnancy in Oregon. Our dashboards aim to present Oregon’s annual vital record data in more accessible, engaging, and interactive ways.
Updated February 2, 2024
The following tables provide the most current statistics on induced abortions in Oregon.
The data represent all abortions performed in Oregon during the current data year. That is, the data constitute events associated with the place of occurrence rather than the "residence data" used in estimating births. This is necessary because many abortions obtained out-of-state by Oregon residents are not reported to Oregon’s Center for Health Statistics. It reflects the great variation in abortion reporting procedures among states (e.g., some states do not record the patient’s residence) as well as the fact that a comprehensive data collection network among all states, similar to that used in reporting births, does not exist in regard to abortions.
