Back to Birth Characteristics.

*Premature birth estimated from questions in Birth Characteristics module: 1. Was (CHILD) born before his/her due date? and 2. How many weeks or months was s/he born early?

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
