El objetivo del presente trabajo se concreta en analizar el comportamiento de la demanda de aborto en nuestro país señalando cuáles son los principales aspectos demográficos que lo describen. El análisis se efectuará desde una perspectiva empírica, evitando cualquier implicación de tipo ideológico o religioso. En primer lugar, realizaremos un análisis descriptivo de este fenómeno demográfico, destacando sus rasgos más característicos. Posteriormente, analizaremos desde un punto de vista socioeconómico, el comportamiento de la demanda de aborto, destacando la influencia que las condiciones económicas y sociales ejercen sobre la misma. Mediante el uso de técnicas econométricas, estudiaremos la influencia que ejercen variables como el nivel de formación femenino, renta salarial, situación laboral de la mujer o la disolución de la unión familiar, sobre la decisión de interrumpir, o no, el embarazo. The objetive of the present report is to analyze the demand for abortion in Spain from a socioeconomie point of view. We study the influence of different variables such as the woman educatimel backfround, rent, woman labor situation or the family union rupture on the decision of stopping the pregnancy. Firstly we perform a descriptive analysis of the demographie phenomenon, and next an econmetrie study for autonomous communities for the year 1991. The results reflect the global and individual influence of the studies variables an the rate of voluntary pregnency interruption in Spain.
