About PDF files
In many cases PDF (portable document format) files of Guttmacher Institute documents are available as an alternative to HTML. These files generally print out better than HTML because they are formatted for a sheet of standard letter size paper.
Viewing the PDF files on the Guttmacher Institute website requires that you have Adobe Acrobat Reader version 7.0 or higher installed on your computer. If you do not have version 7 or higher on your computer, you may download updated versions from Adobe for free. To get the latest version your computer will run, click on the button below, specify your computer’s operating system, and check the system requirements before downloading and installing.
Note that PDF files generally take longer to load into a browser than a typical HTML file. You may see a blank screen while the document loads. Your browser preferences can be set to determine whether Acrobat opens the pdf file in your browser or saves it to your desktop.
