Therapeutic Abortion Survey
Summary of changes
Activity on this program started: 1970
Reference period of change - 2006
Data accuracy - Because four clinics did not respond to the Therapeutic Abortion Survey in 2006, there is a significant under coverage of induced abortions performed in clinics.
Reference period of change - 2005
As of 2005, no marital status data are reported anywhere.
Reference period of change - 2004
In 2004, only Manitoba hospitals submitted marital status for January to March of 2004. As of April 2004, all Manitoba data were downloaded from the Discharge Abstract Database.
Reference period of change - 2003
In 2003, only 3% of total records (hospital and clinic abortions) contain a known marital status.
Reference period of change - 2001
Data sources - As of data year 2001, information on marital status is significantly reduced. The Discharge Abstract Database, the major source for hospital abortion data, no longer collects marital status as of fiscal 2001/2002. As well, detailed records from Quebec no longer contain this information.
