Data Provided By Kids Count Alaska

Definitions: Percent of babies weighing less than 5.5 lbs. (or 2,500 grams) at birth averaged over five years of data.  This is a 5-year moving average.   

Data Source: Alaska Section of Health Analytics and Vital Records

Footnotes: Five years of data were combined to minimize the unreliability of measurement due to the small number of actual events. The reported values are a rolling average across five years.  For example, we report the average value across the years 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.
