INDIANA INDUCED TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY REPORT
2002

Preface


The 2002 Indiana Induced Termination of Pregnancy Report provides a summary of the terminated pregnancies reported in Indiana. Information on terminated pregnancies is provided to the State under the authority of Indiana State Code 16-34-2-5. Summary tables have been developed, some of which include data for each county. The information provided in these tables is intended for health professionals, students, legislators, and others interested in the health of the Indiana community.

Indiana currently uses the 1977 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standards for collecting data on race and ethnicity. These standards are in use by all states who have not yet revised their birth certificates to meet the 1997 OMB standards for collecting race and ethnicity information. The 1977 standards are also the standards used by the National Vital Statistics System for national reporting. The relationship between these two OMB standards and the terms used to report race and ethnicity in this report are as follows:
