* This table was updated on 09/28/2017. In the previous version, age was calculated by subtracting the patient's birth year from the year of the procedure (year-to-year). In this updated table, age is calculated by subtracting the patient's full date of birth from the full date of procedure (date-to-date). 
** Includes both Texas residence and Texas occurrence induced terminations of pregnancy.

Dilation and evacuation: Surgical procedures performed after 14 weeks 0 days gestation are called dilation and evacuation (D & E) procedures. This type of surgical procedure typically requires a greater degree of cervical dilation and the use of grasping forceps. 
Gestation period: Number of completed weeks elapsed between the first day of the last normal menstrual period and the date of delivery.
Hysterotomy: Evacuation of the pregnancy through incision of the uterus.
Induced termination of pregnancy: Any act or procedure performed after a pregnancy is medically verified with the intent to cause the termination of an intra-uterine pregnancy other than for the purpose of either the birth of a live infant or removing a dead fetus.
Intrauterine Instillation: Injecting saline or prostaglandin into the uterus to cause contractions, which expel the contents of the uterus.
Medical (Nonsurgical) Abortion: Administration of medications for the purpose of inducing an abortion.
Occurrence data: Data compiled by the geographic place in which the event occurred without regard to the place of residence of the individual(s) involved in the event.
Race: A geographical population of humankind that possesses inherited distinctive physical characteristics that distinguish it from other populations.
Residence data: Data compiled by the usual place of residence without regard to the geographic place where the event occurred. For births and fetal deaths, the mother's usual residence is used as the place of residence.
Sharp Curettage (dilation and curettage, D&C, or surgical curettage): A surgical procedure in which the uterine contents are removed with curette.
Suction Curettage (Vacuum Aspiration): Removal of uterine contents through a flexible tube attached to a suction apparatus.
