Table 6 One-year abortion incidence (per 1000) of female respondents age 15 to 49 and their closest female confidantes age 15 to 49 by country and adjustment for biases

From: Social network-based measurement of abortion incidence: promising findings from population-based surveys in Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire, and Rajasthan, India

  1. Bold indicates statistical significance in comparison to unadjusted respondent incidence
  2. aPoisson modeled confidante estimates’ sample sizes are equivalent to the corresponding respondent sample size for that country
