Folate Status in Women of Childbearing Age, by Race/Ethnicity — United States, 1999–2000, 2001–2002, and 2003–2004

PRESS CONTACT: CDC - Division of Media Relations
(404) 639-3286


This MMWR report uses National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data to update findings and assess trends in serum folate and red blood cell (RBC) folate levels by race/ethnicity from the 1999–2000 survey through the 2003–2004 survey. The results of these comparisons indicated that median serum folate concentrations among non-pregnant women of childbearing age decreased 16 percent from 1999–2000 through 2003–2004 and RBC folate concentrations decreased 8 percent. Fortification of enriched cereal-grain products with folic acid to help prevent pregnancies affected by a neural tube defect (NTD) (e.g., spina bifida or anencephaly) became mandatory in the United States in January 1998.
