Very Premature Births Data

Very Premature births (when a baby is born before the 32nd completed week of pregnancy) 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 Premature Annual Avg Births Count is the average number of live singleton births that occur at less than 32 weeks gestation per year during the 5 year period.
  • The Very Premature Births Percent is the number of live singleton births that occur at less than 32 weeks gestation as a percent of all live singleton births during the 5 year period.
