Very Low Birthweight Births Data

Very Low Birthweight (LBW) births (when a baby is born with a weight less than 1,500 grams or 3.3 pounds) are presented on a five year aggregate basis to reduce the presence of suppressed values due to small numbers. Data can be displayed at the county level, and includes stabilization of rates to better evaluate trends.

Measure Description:

  • The Very LBW Annual Avg Births Count is the average number of very low birth weight live singleton births per year during the 5 year period.
  • The Very LBW Births Percent is the number of very low birth weight live singleton births as a percent of all live singleton births during the 5 year period.
