aCategories based on the World Bank's classification of income groups (https://datahelpdesk.worldbank.org/knowledgebase/articles/906519-world-bank-country-and-lending-groups): low-income countries have a gross national income (GNI) per capita less than $1025; lower-middle income countries have GNI per capita between $1026 and $4035; upper-middle income countries have GNI per capita between $4036 and $12,475; and high-income countries are those with a GNI per capita of $12,476 or more. Classifications based on GNI per capita from the year of data collection.
bClassifications reflect country abortion laws at the time of data collection. These categories are, from most to least restrictive: to save the woman's life or prohibited altogether; to preserve health; socioeconomic grounds; and without restriction as to reason. Data are from the Center for Reproductive Rights, “The World's Abortion Laws”: http://worldabortionlaws.com/map/.
