Fetal Deaths Information

  • Natality Information

The Fetal Deaths online databases calculate summary statistics for fetal deaths at 20 weeks gestation or more, occurring within the United States to U.S. residents. Information are derived from Report of Fetal Death forms, both the 1989 revision of the U.S. Standard Report of Fetal Death (unrevised) and the 2003 revision of the U.S. Standard Report of Fetal Death (revised). Data are available by place: region and state of mother's residence; time: year, month and weekday of death; parental characteristics including mother's race and ethnicity, age, and father's age; fetal characteristics including gestational age, sex, weight at delivery, and plurality; maternal risk factors including chronic and pregnancy-associated conditions; and congenital anomalies of the fetus.
