Exploring the antecedents and predictors of termination of pregnancy (TOP) in the 1973-78 cohort of ALSWH
As part of a suite of studies addressing the reduction of unwanted pregnancy, the aim of this study is to examine what factors are associated longitudinally with termination of pregnancy (TOP) among women. We are interested in how antecedents and predictors of TOP might change over time. We propose to examine this among all women who have reported one or more TOPs in the five surveys of the Young (1973-1978) cohort. We anticipate factors may include socio-economic status, contraceptive practice, health service use , abuse status, number of partners, alcohol and other drug use and aspirations by the age of 35.
