Notes: Frequencies include all children reported with a birth defect who were born in Michigan. Rates are per 10,000 Michigan resident live births. Birth defect statistics sometimes reflect trends related to data reporting or new testing. See Data Quality Considerations for further details. Conditions are reportable if identified within the first two years of a child's life. The prevalence frequencies and rates at one year and at two years serve to indicate the time from the birth of the child to the diagnosis of the condition.
