|Time frame of data and timeliness||Data are presented by calendar year. The dataset is generally thought to be complete by end of March when an extract from the database is taken. A small number of notifications that miss this cut-off are subsequently included in the following year’s report.|

|Accuracy||Abortion notification information on forms is clerically checked and also validated at data entry. Statistics are compared to previous year's figures.|
|Continuity of data||Open data is available from 1992 onwards when postcode became available.|
|Concepts and definitions||Concepts and definitions are provided in the full report available on the PHS website.|
|Disclosure||The PHS statistical disclosure protocol has been followed.|
|Revision statement||Receipt of late abortion notifications may be received after publication, with figures being revised at next update.|
