This module creates statistics on the percent of births to teens in Wisconsin. It provides data on the number and geographic location of births and selected characteristics of the mother, the infant, and their health care. Another module shows Teen Birth Rates.
This revision adds 2013 birth data to the module.
To define your query, you may focus on certain counties, regions or local health departments for the current year or a range of years since 1989. You may also select specific maternal characteristics, such as the mother's age, education, marital status, or race/ethnicity. You may select characteristics of the infant, such as gestational age or birthweight. You may also request data about the health care received, including measures of the adequacy of prenatal care.
Finally, choose row and column variables for your table from a list that includes geographic areas, years, maternal or infant characteristics and health care.
