Notice to Readers: Release of Interactive Atlas of Reproductive Health

CDC has released the Interactive Atlas of Reproductive Health. This online public resource uses interactive geographic information systems (GIS) technology to generate state, urban, and county maps and tables displaying reproductive data that public health authorities can use to design prevention policies and programs to meet community needs. Six reproductive health indicator groups are available for analysis: fetal and infant mortality, pregnancy outcomes, maternal risks, teen risks, infant health, and maternal interventions. These indicators can be displayed as maps or tables by time, geographic level (state, county, or metropolitan statistical area), geographic view (national, regional, or state), and different demographic and risk categories. An estimated six million displays can be generated.

The atlas has two major sections: 1) interactive pages that provide an extensive series of national, regional, and state maps and tables of reproductive health indicator rates by selected demographic and risk groups in the United States and territories, and 2) help pages that explain GIS, define the indicators and the demographic and risk options, and explain how to use the interactive portion of the site.

The atlas is available at Additional information about reproductive health is available at
