Methodology

We collect policy data in 31 high-income countries over a time span of 40 decades in five fields of regulation. Our data collection is through country experts, who fill out questionnaires covering the five fields of regulation: sexuality education, contraception, abortion, assisted reproductive technologies and pregnancy care. Before going to the field, questionnaires are pretested with field experts, who give feedback on the items included on reproduction policies in their respective fields of expertise.
