The data requested can be found in published format within the annual Abortion Statistics produced each year. Information is collected from the abortion notification for HSA4 which is submitted to the Chief Medical Officer. Due to the size of the data, the information requested is shown in the attached tables. For the year 2011 we only have data for gestations 24 weeks and over.
