  • DSU - Data statistically unreliable.

Methodology

  • Rates based on fewer than 20 births are considered unreliable and are not shown.
  • For some states, marital status is inferred as nonmarital if a paternity acknowledgement was received or a father's name is missing. The number of states which obtain these data through such inferences varies by year but generally small. For records missing this information in states where this information is obtained exclusively by a direct question, marital status was imputed as "married" for records where father's age is known and "not married" were father's age is not known.

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.
