2009 Assisted Reproductive Technology Report

2009 ART Report coverThe Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) report provides an in-depth picture of the type, number, and outcome of ART cycles performed in U.S. fertility clinics. It also includes individual clinic tables that provide ART success rates and other information from each clinic. The report includes submitted and verified 2009 data and appendixes containing the results of data validation visits, technical notes, a glossary, and contact information for reporting and non-reporting clinics in the United States.

The data for this national report comes from the 441 fertility clinics reporting in 2009 that provided and verified data on the outcomes of all ART cycles started at their clinics. The 146,244* ART cycles were performed at 441 reporting clinics in the United States during 2009, resulting in 45,870 live births (deliveries of one or more living infants) and 60,190 infants.

Data provided by U.S. fertility clinics that use ART to treat infertility is a rich source of information about the factors that contribute to a successful ART treatment—the delivery of a live-born infant.

*Excludes banking cycles and cycles in which a new treatment procedure was being evaluated.
