In December 1984, the Association of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Republic of China (AOG) conducted a survey of its members to obtain information about the practice of induced abortion in the Taiwan Area. A total of 1,056 physicians currently practicing obstetrics and gynecology were contacted by mail and invited to participate in the survey; 330 agreed for a response rate of 31 percent. These 330 physicians were asked to complete questionnaires on all patients undergoing induced abortion in their practices during a one-week period: December 3-9, 1984.
