- I would like to find the 12 to 19 abortion rate per 10,000 women from the following table:
This would be the merging of age groups "12-17" with "18-19" to some how get the 12-19 abortion rate.
The answer I came up with is 125.67 per 10,000. Not sure if that is correct.
I multiplied the rate per individual woman by the number of abortions for each group which I think gave the number of women. I added both of these groups together. I added both groups number of abortions and then divided the amount of women by amount of abortions and multiplied it by 10,000.
