2023 MARCH OF DIMES REPORT CARD
The 2023 March of Dimes Report Card highlights the collective factors that contribute to maternal and infant mortality and morbidity. Since 2008, March of Dimes has released our Report Card to educate and advocate for better mom and baby outcomes across the U.S., Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico. One thing that has remained constant: an alarmingly high preterm birth rate. In 2022, over 380,000 babies were born preterm—10.4% of all births—earning our nation a D+ for the second year in a row. In addition to the preterm birth rate, the report also includes indicators to better reflect the state of maternal and infant health in the U.S.
