The table below shows the Reproductive Risk Index from Family Planning International's resource, A Measure of the Future: women's sexual and reproductive risk index for the Pacific 2009.
The Reproductive Risk Index ranks 21 of the 22 Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) and places each within one of four categories based on the level of reproductive risk that women face.
When using the index, it is important to note that while the data utilised illuminates disparities in reproductive health between countries, it hides those disparities that exist within each individual PICT.
Similarly, because of missing data and out-of-date data, the index ranking should be used with some caution. In particular, the rankings of both Guam and Tokelau should be ignored, because more than thee indicators are missing.
