Dataset

Abortions--Number, Rate, and Ratio, by Race: 1975 to 2003

Added By Infochimps

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 96):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629

This dataset consists of a table of 47 rows and 13 columns.

Footnotes

  1. Live births are those which occurred from July 1 of year shown
    through June 30 of the following year (to match time of conception
    with abortions). Births are classified by race of child 1972-1988,
    and by race of mother after 1988.
  2. Total numbers of abortions in 1983, 1986, 1989, 1990, 1993, 1994, 1997, and 1998 have been estimated
    by interpolation;
    data for 2001 through 2003 have been estimated using trends in Centers for Disease Control data.
