Note: Gestational age based on the clinician’s estimate. Reports with weeks of gestation not reported are included in the 'Total' row only. Reports with principal procedure not reported are included in the ''All Procedures' column only.  The reporting of procedures used conforms to national recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In abortions where more than one procedure was performed, the principal procedure was determined according to the following hierachy: hysterectomy/hysterotomy, sharp curettage (D&C), saline injection or prostaglandin, dilation and evacuation, medical (non-surgical), suction curettage, and other procedures.
