  1. Socio-demographic characteristics of women requesting induced abortion : a cross-sectional study from the Municipality of Malmö, Sweden.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this study in an urban population has been to describe socio-demographic characteristics of women seeking an induced abortion.

    The 1,220 cases in the study correspond to an annual abortion rate of 26.0 per 1,000 women aged 15-44.

    There were substantial differences from 10.1 to 42.6 per 1,000 women in the 18 different urban areas.

    High rate areas had, in comparison with the municipal average, a higher percentage of people with low income, low education, foreign background, and people in need of social welfare.

    There was also a higher percentage of people living alone and a higher migration rate.

    Women applying for an induced abortion had similar socio-demographic characteristics.
