Data Quality in the Therapeutic Abortion Survey

  • Published 2008


The Therapeutic Abortion Survey was originally designed to measure all legally induced abortions performed in Canada (and to the extent possible, abortions performed in the US on Canadian residents prior to 2004). Statistics Canada was responsible for the survey up to the 1994 data year. As of the 1995 data year, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) assumed data collection, compilation and processing responsibilities. Statistics Canada remains involved in the approval of the final annual file and plays a major role in the dissemination of data from the survey.
