Live Births with Low and Very Low Birthweight

This dataset contains two tables with the percent of live births with low birthweight and very low birthweight: 1) by maternal county of residence 2) by race/ethnicity group of mother. Low birthweight are live births weighing less than 2,500 grams (approximately 5 pounds, 8 ounces). Very low birthweight are live births weighing less than 1,500 grams (approximately 3 pounds, 5 ounces). Low and very low birthweight can be associated with very serious health problems for the infant and can lead to certain serious health conditions later in life. Data includes births with birthweight of 227 to 8,165 grams and excludes non-California residents.
