The incidence of spontaneous abortion among reproductive women in Shaanxi province was 4.94%. The ratio of spontaneous abortion to pregnancies was 3.58%, with a spontaneous abortion rate of 3.92%. The risk of spontaneous abortion increased with maternal age, number of pregnancies, lower education levels, and poorer economic conditions. The southern region had the lowest risk of spontaneous abortion, while rural areas had higher risks than urban areas. Xianyang and Yan'an had significantly higher risks compared to other districts.
