Definitions: Percentage of infants born to women who received prenatal care in the first 3 months of pregnancy by race or ethnicity

Data Source: Hawaii Health Data Warehouse; Hawaii State Department of Health, Office of Health Status Monitoring, Vital Statistics, ("Live Births in Hawaii by Trimester Prenatal Care Began and Mothers DOH Race-Ethnicity (2014+); Birth Counts and Percentages for the State of Hawaii (Residents Only), by Trimester Prenatal Care Began and Mothers DOH Race-Ethnicity, for the Years 2014-2015"). Report Created: 05/10/2017.

Technical Note:
Due to changes in data collection methods, rates of early prenatal care from the year 2014 and forward cannot be compared with data from prior years. Starting in 2014, the state of Hawaii revised birth records according to U.S. Standard Certificates of Live Births (more information can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vital_certificate.htm). Birth records previously reported the month that a mother began prenatal care whereas revised birth certificates starting in 2014 report the complete date of the first prenatal care visit including month, day, and year.

N/R: Not reportable due to data suppression (i.e., where the number of births was between 1 and 5 in Hawaii State Department of Health reports) and early prenatal care could not be calculated.
