The Ohio Profile of Contraceptive Access and Use
County Health Indicators
Understand your county’s health profile compared to Ohio as a whole and the rest of the United States.
The Ohio Profile of Contraceptive Access and Use is compiling data on different health outcomes at the county level, starting with teen pregnancy and birth rates.
In 2016, Ohio ranked 24 out of 51 (50 states plus the District of Columbia) on teen birth rates defined as the number of live teen births per 1,000 among females aged 15-19.1
The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) compiles pregnancy statistics for Ohio and counties.2 Unlike the national statistics that reflect the number of live births only, the number of teen pregnancies calculated by ODH includes the sum of live births, induced abortions, and estimated fetal loss. Live birth data were extracted from Ohio Vital Statistics births file3 induced abortions were obtained from Ohio Vital Statistics abortion file4 and fetal loss were estimated from the National Survey for Family Growth.5
