Thank you for that response and the spreadsheet, it is very helpful. I have one more question regarding your answer. You mention that:

"In order to be part of the survey characteristics on our website, there must a variable to count the abortions"

Does that mean that among the country specific variables there is a variable which specifically identifies which women underwent an abortion? I guess it is country specific, but would you be able to give more detail which variable it is exacly?

And what does it mean that this variable counts the abortions?

I am working with reproductive calendar examining the births/terminations in the past 5 years. I would be interested in figuring out which of the terminations (T) are abortions (as opposed to for example miscarriages). Would that be possible given that you mention that there is some variable which counts the abortions?

I would very much appreciate your further help.

Thank you!
Ewa
