Definition and Source
The number and percent of babies who weighed less than 2,500 grams (5 pounds, 8 ounces) at birth.
S: Data estimate has been suppressed. When the annual number of low weight birth was 10 or fewer, percent is not shown. Data presented here are annual estimates. We did not calculate three year averages for this indicator as the majority of the counties, in the majority of the years, reported low birth weight counts of more than 10.
