The Guttmacher Institute is the primary source of data on unintended pregnancy and adolescent pregnancy rates at the U.S. state and national levels. The Institute also calculates the public cost of unintended pregnancies and supports investment in family planning services that help address women’s and families’ changing contraceptive needs.
