<p>The CDC began collecting U.S. abortion incidence statistics in 1969. However, states are not required to report. The data excludes California, Maryland, and New Hampshire, which do not report their statistics. Therefore, the CDC's surveillance data is likely underreported. The Guttmacher Institute, which conducts a national survey, reports higher numbers. In 2019 the CDC reported a total of 629,898 abortions nationally.
