WISH Query Teen Births Module (Percent of Births to Teens)

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.

See Measures Used In Birth Modules for definitions and notes on measurement.

Step 3. Choose One or More Years


You can see data for the latest available year (2013). Or you can choose to see one or more single years, or one or more groups of years. If you are requesting data for an area or group with few annual births, it may be useful to combine years of data. WISH suppresses small numbers (cell size less than 5) to comply with Wisconsin vital records data privacy guidelines.

One or more years: Click on the "One or more years" button. Then select a year, or hold down the Control (Ctrl) key and select more than one year.

Specify your own years: Click on this button, then enter the years of interest, one per box or as a range.
