Infants Whose Mothers Received Prenatal Care in the First Trimester, by Race/Ethnicity of Mother
Definition: Percentage of infants whose mothers received prenatal care in the first trimester of pregnancy, by race/ethnicity of mother (e.g., among California infants born to African American/Black mothers in 2013, 78.3% had mothers who received prenatal care during their first trimester).Number of infants whose mothers received prenatal care in the first trimester of pregnancy, by race/ethnicity of mother.
Data Source: California Dept. of Public Health, Center for Health Statistics, Birth Statistical Master Files (Mar. 2015).
Footnote: County-level data reflect the mother's county of residence, not the county in which the birth occurred. LNE (Low Number Event) refers to data that have been suppressed because there were fewer than 20 infants whose mothers received prenatal care in a given racial/ethnic group. Data exclude infants for whom prenatal care information is missing. N/A means that data are not available. For example, data for "Multiracial" women are not available prior to 2000. Use caution in comparing racial/ethnic groups before and after 2000, as the racial definitions changed that year.
