This study examines the levels and pattern of, as well as the factors associated with, pregnancy termination in seventeen Sub-Sahara African countries. The 2000 round of demographic and health survey (DHS) data sets for the countries are used. The study population are women aged 15-49 who have ever been exposed to the risk of pregnancy and interviewed during the surveys. Univariate analysis is done to examine the distribution of the women. Bivariate analysis of selected background, contraceptive, sexual behaviour and fertility variables by having ever had a terminated pregnancy are also carried out. Lastly, multivariate logistic regression models are fitted to examine the magnitude of associated variables while controlling for others.
