Notes:

1Beginning with the 2008 birth certificate, the definition of seizure changed. A seizure is any involuntary repetitive, convulsive movement or behavior, excluding symptoms associated with CNS congenital anomalies. Because of this change, seizure statistics produced after 2007 are not directly comparable to similar statistics produced before 2007.

2Beginning with the 2008 birth certificate, the definition of “birth injury” was limited to include only significant injuries such as skeletal fracture, peripheral nerve injury or soft tissue/solid organ hemorrhage which required intervention. Birth injury statistics produced after 2007 are not directly comparable to similar statistics produced before 2007.

Records with race not stated are included only in the 'All Races' column.
