Back to Birth Characteristics.

*Low birth weight estimated from question: How much did s/he weigh at birth?

^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.
