Births and Infant Deaths

This page provides access to data dashboards, statistical publications, and other information based primarily on aggregate data from Wisconsin birth records. Wisconsin Stat. ch. 69 mandates the State Registrar in the Department of Health Services (DHS) to supervise and direct the collection of birth data. This statute also requires DHS to issue annual statistical reports based on the data.

In addition to the mandated birth data, some of the publications rely on other data sources, including death records, fetal death reports, and reports of induced terminations of pregnancy. Wisconsin Stat. ch. 69 also governs the collection and use of these kinds of data.
