Linked Birth / Infant Death Records

This data collection provides counts and rates for deaths of children under 1 year of age, occurring within the United States to U.S. residents. Information from death certificates has been linked to corresponding birth certificates. Data are available by county of mother's residence, child's age, underlying cause of death, gender, birth weight, birth plurality, birth order, gestational age at birth, period of prenatal care, maternal race and ethnicity, maternal age, maternal education and marital status. The data are produced by the National Center for Health Statistics. For more information, refer to Linked Birth / Infant Death data description.

Select from following:

Linked Birth / Infant Death Records for 2007-2013 with ICD 10 codes

Linked Birth / Infant Death Records for 2003-2006 with ICD 10 codes

Linked Birth / Infant Death Records for 1999-2002 with ICD 10 codes

Linked Birth / Infant Death Records for 1995-1998 with ICD 9 codes

The International Classification of Diseases 9th Revision (ICD 9) codes are used to specify underlying cause of death for the years 1995 - 1998. Beginning in 1999, cause of death is specified with the International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision (ICD 10) codes. The two revisions differ substantially, and to prevent confusion about the significance of any specific disease code, data queries are separate. For more information, see Comparability of Cause-of-Death Between ICD Revisions.
