What is less clear is the magnitude of these changes. The impact of a policy depends on the availability of alternatives. Very poor women may be unable to raise the necessary funds for an abortion. If minors have to travel hundreds of miles to find an abortion provider in a state without a parental notification statute, then they may carry the pregnancy to term. If women must see a physician twice and wait at least 24 h between visits before a procedure can go forward, then her termination is likely to be delayed.

Ideally, researchers would like agespecific abortion rates by state of residence from 1974 to 2008. These data do not exist. The CDC collects abortions by age for approximately 40 states, but they refer to abortions by state of occurrence. The Guttmacher Institute has used the CDC data to estimate abortions by state of residence, but the Guttmacher researchers acknowledge that their estimates do not take into account travel by subgroups. This becomes a major source of bias in studies of PI laws because resident minors leave the state in response to a PI requirement and nonresident minors stop coming into the state.

The aforementioned studies used aggregate data to correlate the abortion rate with county-level measures of health. All reasoned that areas with higher abortion rates had a more optimal distribution of birth outcomes as less healthy or desired fetuses were aborted. An ecological approach appeared the only way to associate abortion to health. At the individual level, a pregnancy that is terminated is eliminated from the sample of births. There seemed to be no individual-level analog to the aggregate analysis.
