  • DSU - Data statistically unreliable.

Methodology

  • Maternal age is reported as age in completed years. Maternal age is computed in most cases from the mother’s and infant’s dates of birth as reported on the birth certificate. For records missing these data, maternal age was imputed according to the last record with the same race and total birth order (total of live births and fetal deaths). Maternal age was also imputed for reported age outside the range 10-54 years.
  • Rates based on fewer than 20 births are considered unreliable and are not shown.

Data Source(s)

  • National Vital Statistics System-Natality (NVSS-N)

    Description Vital statistics natality data are a fundamental source of demographic, geographic, and medical and health information on all births occurring in the United States. This is one of the few sources of comparable health-related data for small geographic areas over an extended period of time. The data are used to present the characteristics of babies and their mothers, track trends such as birth rates for teenagers, and compare natality trends with those in other countries.

    MethodologyThe National Vital Statistics System Natality component (NVSS-N) obtains information on deaths from the registration offices of each of the 50 states, New York City, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and Northern Mariana Islands. By law, registration of deaths is the responsibility of the professional attendant at birth, generally a physician or midwife. The birth certificate must be filed with the local registrar in the district in which the birth occurred, within a time period prescribed by law (generally 1 to 10 days). State birth certificates are modeled on a U.S. Standard Certificate that is revised periodically. States provide the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) with birth records in electronic format.
