Data Description

These birth data come from the Texas Certificate of Live Birth. A new Texas birth certificate was introduced in 2005, which included several changes. The process involved in this revision, as well as details of what was revised, can be found on the CDC website. For some variables, including onset of prenatal care, data from 2005 onward should not be directly compared to data from 2004 and before.

Measure Information

This dashboard excludes unknown values and masks low counts with “—“. If a geographic area has no counts for one or more of the selected variables, that row will not show in the table. The location variables (region, county, ZIP) refer to the mother’s residence.
