Data Opportunities and Challenges in a Post-Roe World


In 2022, the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, which overturned Roe v. Wade, ended the Constitutional right to an abortion and dramatically changed the health care landscape in the United States. Researchers on abortion, fertility, and reproductive health have been working to understand the implications of the Supreme Court decision, including access to care, birth rates, and health outcomes.

As we near the two-year anniversary of Dobbs, join us for a panel discussion in which experts from across the United States discuss questions including: What are the barriers to conducting abortion-related research today? What have we learned from the data so far? Where are the data gaps and how can we fill them?

Moderator: Beth Jarosz, Population Reference Bureau and APDU
