Abstract dc.description.abstract this dataset contains details of the number of abortions in Scotland broken down by council authority and by age (under 20, 20-29, over 30) for 2008 and 2009. The figures are the absolute numbers and not the rates, hence the urban areas seem high in comparison to less populated areas. Standardising by population to give a rate per 100 000 might be useful.
