Pregnancy estimates are based on the total number of births and abortions.
For 1985 and 1988-1995, abortion estimates are based on reported in-state and out-of-state occurrences among Oregon residents. For years prior to 1985 (and in 1986-1987), abortion estimates were based on Oregon occurrences only but included abortions obtained by out-of-state residents. This change permits closer comparison with the figures in Table 4-7 (and Table 4-5) but, because some neighboring states do not report abortions to the state of residence (especially California), this results in minimal estimates for both abortions and pregnancies.
Percentage of pregnancies resulting in a live birth.
-- Data not available.
All rates per 1,000 females 10-17 years of age. 1995: 170,807.
