Vital Statistics of the United States, 1996, Volume I, Natality

This Internet release of Vital Statistics of the United States, 1996, Volume I, Natality, includes a total of 39 tables. The 1996 Natality Technical Appendix [PDF - 2.6 MB] describes the data contained in the tables in this Internet release.

NOTE: Population-based rates included in the report, "Report of Final Natality Statistics, 1996," and here in "Vital Statistics of the United States, 1996, Volume I, Natality," are based on postcensal population estimates consistent with the 1990 census. Rates for 1996 have recently been revised using more accurate population estimates that incorporate the results of the 2000 census, and are available in: National Vital Statistics Report, Volume 51, Number 12 [PDF - 1.1 MB]. The 1990 based estimates are used in this report for consistency with reports in the series that have already been published and will not be reissued using the intercensal population estimates. The cohort-fertility rates included in "Vital Statistics of the United States, 1996, Volume I, Natality," are based on postcensal population estimates consistent with the 1990 census. These rates will be revised based on the results of the 2000 census when population data in the necessary detail become available.
