Notes

Data are reported by mother’s place of residence, not infant’s place of birth. For cases where the information for this variable was missing, the case was excluded from the total number of live births. The numerator for the rate calculation is the sum of three years of data.   

* = Rate not calculated for fewer than 6 events.
