Note:

1Miscarriages are estimates adapted from a model developed by C. Tietz and J. Bongaarts of the Population Council (20% of the unintended live births and 10% of the abortions).

2Unintended pregnancies are the sum of abortions, unintended live births and miscarriages resulting from an unintended pregnancy.
