L.N.E. signifies a low number event. When the number of low birth-weight babies in a given county and year is fewer than 5, the data is suppressed to protect the confidentiality of individuals.
Beginning in 2007, more detailed information was collected such as: the average number of cigarettes/or packs that were smoked during the three months prior to becoming pregnant, the first three months of pregnancy, the second three months of pregnancy, and the last trimester of pregnancy.  If the mother smoked at any time during her pregnancy, she was considered to be a smoker for this indicator.
