  • Description
    Births by Maternal Demographic Characteristics - 5-Year Aggregations reports the 5-year average number and percentage of births in certain categories by maternal demographic characteristics (mother's age, race, and ethnicity).
  • Full Description
    This dataset provides select birth outcomes (birthweight, gestational age) for Connecticut resident births along with select demographic characteristics of the mother (mother's age, race, and ethnicity). Low birth weight is less than 2500 grams, or about 5.5 pounds. Very low birth weight is less than 1500 grams, or about 3.3 pounds. A birth is premature if it occurs before the gestational age of 37 completed weeks. Department of Public Health collects and publishes annual vital statistics reports (www.ct.gov/dph/RegistrationReport) and CTdata.org carries annual data, 3-year and 5-year averages. More dimensions can be found in the raw data such as birth pluralities.
