Note: This table shows cities with (1) populations greater than 40,000 according to 2007 estimates and (2) three-year average births of greater than 200. City birth and mortality statistics have changed from pre-2011 reports due to geocoding. See Data Quality Considerations for further details. Rates are per 1,000 live births. Adding and subtracting the number shown after the ± symbol from the rate creates a confidence interval indicating that the true rate lies between the lower and upper bounds of this interval with 95 % statistical confidence.
  *A rate is not calculated when there are fewer than 6 events, because the width of the confidence interval would negate any usefulness for comparative purposes.
