I continue to try and understand why the accuracy of abortion statistics in this country are so pathetic. I contacted CIHI to get more clarifications about their numbers.
As we already know CIHI’s data sources are here:
1. Discharge Abstract Database, Canadian Institute for Health Information.2. National Ambulatory Care Reporting System, Canadian Institute for Health Information.3. National Physician Database NPDB (here), Canadian Institute for Health Information.4. Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec.5. Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living.6. Induced abortion clinics in Newfoundland and Labrador, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.
