Ideally I would have used actual abortion numbers from each province, and had actual numbers from CIHI. But that seems like an impossible dream. We know Alberta is under reports because they don’t count medical abortions. We know that CIHI also isn’t reporting medical abortions. We know that Quebec and Ontario under report their abortions by 20%. And that’s just what we know, we don’t know.
So instead I just used CIHI’s numbers.
