1 Live births are those which occurred from July 1 of year shown through June 30 of the following year (to match time of conception with abortions). Births are classified by race of child 1972-1988, and by race of mother after 1988.
2 Total numbers of abortions in 1983 and 1986 have been estimated by interpolation; 1989, 1990, 1993 and 1994 have been estimated using trends in CDC data.
