The percentage of women aged 50 years or older who have had a hysterectomy decreased from 36.6% in 2008 to 31.7% in 2018.
Decreases were also observed among non-Hispanic white women (37.5% to 33.3%) and Hispanic women (30.3% to 22.6%), but there was no significant decrease for non-Hispanic black women (40.4% to 36.8%).
For both time points, non-Hispanic black and non-Hispanic white women were more likely than Hispanic women to have had a hysterectomy.
