Birth Defects Data Now Available on PeriStats

December 2014

PeriStats has recently been expanded to include state-level data on birth defects from the National Birth Defects Prevention Network (NBDPN).

NBDPN, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, collects and reports data on major birth defects from state birth defects surveillance systems. Birth defects are generally referred to as abnormalities of structure, function or metabolism (body chemistry) present at birth that result in physical or mental disabilities, or death.

Through a cooperative agreement with the CDC, NBDPN birth defects data for 2007-2011 from 37 states for 47 conditions are now available on PeriStats. Most prevalence rates are reported as a prevalence per 10,000 live births and are provided by maternal race/ethnicity. In addition, chromosomal defects are also provided stratified by maternal age, a known risk factor for these defects.

For more information and to view the current Annual Congenital Malformations Surveillance Project Report, visit the NBDPN website.
