Abstract: The induced miscarriage is considered a public health problem all over the world. Dallari (2005) reflects about all society and, especially those who work with people s health who must discuss searching for a possible consensus about the miscarriage practice, aiming to find the best way to deal with the problem. The studies goals were to identify the sociodemographic and reproductive profile of women interned in a maternity in the district of Serra, Espírito Santo State, and to evaluate the frequency of induced miscarriages associated to sociodemographic and reproductive aspects of the same population mentioned above. It is a transversal study, with a quantitative approach. The sample is constituted of three different groups: 21 women who had had an induced miscarriage, 62 who had had spontaneous miscarriage and 83 who had gestation of term interned in Carapina maternity, from August 2005 up to January 2006. For data collection an interview with registration in form was made. Data were analyzed by the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS), version 14.0. The results found indicated that most of the cases happened with women aged between 20 to 24 years old, brown skinned, from eight to eleven studying years, having up to three minimum wages familiar income, evangelic religion, married/ stable union, housewife, menarche age between nine and twelve years old, coitarca and first gestation during the adolescence period, having the average of 1,2 live child and showing unawareness about the Family Planning Program in the district. The following factors influenced in the occurrence of the induced miscarriage: not being married or living a stable union, having a job out of home, not being aware of the Family Planning Program of the district, not planning and not wanting the gestation and being advised to abort. In the multivariate analyses, the variable identification (induced miscarriage/ gestation of term) presented casual relation only with two variables: marital status and the desire of getting pregnant. To minimize the insecure miscarriage problem, the government and the society should invest in better qualities of life for the population and in the promotion of the reproductive health with an incentive for the access to sexual and reproductive education and to family planning.
