VitalStats - Births

Access birth data files. The files, organized into folders, can be accessed by folder, topic or search.


data files icon Birth Data Files

Create your own table by choosing items from dozens of variables from the birth data files. The files are available in two formats, one with the full range of demographic and health variables at state levels of geography. The other with county level detail (population over 100,000 only), and a more limited set of other variables. Please note a log-in is required to use this feature.

PLEASE NOTE: Starting with the 2012 data year, when geography is used and the number of events is less than 10 in any cross-tabulated cell the data are not shown.
