Note: Miscarriages are estimates adapted from a model developed by C. Tietz and J. Bongaarts of the Population Council (20% of the Live Births and 10% of the Abortions). Total live birth and total abortion figures are used in place of age 15-44. All rates are per 1,000 age and sex specific population. County figures may not add to state totals.

"*" -- a rate is not calculated when there are fewer than 6 events.

Pregnancies are the sum of live births, abortions and estimated miscarriages.
