Change Indicator

Note: Non-consecutive years appear adjacent in the trend line
because one or more years have been deselected.

Definitions: Number of live births by county of births.

The 2003 U.S. Standard Certificate of Live Birth, which was implemented in North Carolina during 2010, captures prenatal care and education data in a manner that differs from the prior certificate. Due to data compatibility issues that information will not be available for 2010. Prenatal care and education data for 2011 should not be compared to prior years (2001-2009).
