Induced abortions by area of residence of patients

We would like to inform you of an important change regarding Statistics Canada’s involvement with the Therapeutic Abortion Survey.

In 1995, the collection of the data for this survey was transferred from Statistics Canada to the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). Once the data were collected, they were transferred to Statistics Canada to be released in The Daily, Statistics Canada's main data release vehicle. This process has caused some confusion with the users of the data.

Statistics Canada has decided, in consultation with CIHI, that the responsibility for disseminating these data should reside with CIHI. This move will bring the Therapeutic Abortion Survey in line with other programs at CIHI.

For additional information regarding these data, please follow this link to the CIHI website.
