→Relation with abortion rate

==Relation with abortion rate==

The abortion ratio is related to but distinct from the [[abortion rate]]. The abortion ''rate'' has denominator the total number of women of childbearing age, rather than the total number of live births. They are related via the [[general fertility rate]]. Explicitly:

<math>\mbox{Abortion rate} = \frac{\mbox{Abortion ratio} \times \mbox{General fertility rate}}{1000}</math>
