The Guttmacher Institute collects state-level data on publicly funded family planning services, unintended and teen pregnancy, and abortion. The Institute also tracks and analyzes state policies regarding abortion rights and access, minors’ access to services, funding for contraceptive services, sex and HIV education, and other topics related to sexual and reproductive health and rights.
