Screening Disorders by Race/Ethnicity


This table presents the disorders identified by the California Newborn Screening Program during the ten-year period from 2009 through 2018. The counts of disorders are presented by race/ethnicity groups. The disorders included are part of the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel (RUSP) put forth by the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children (SACHDNC) established under the Section 1111 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, 42 U.S.C. 300b-10, as amended in the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2008.

If individual disorder counts were fewer than 6, the disorders were combined into a group called "Other rare disorders", as described in the Data Dictionary. In addition, race/ethnicity groups were combined into larger categories if the individual group denominator was less than 20,000 newborns screened during the ten-year period from 2009-2018. Three types of sickle cell-related hemoglobinopathies (Sickle Beta+ Thalassemia, Sickle S/S Disease and Sickle S/C Disease) were combined into one group called "Sickle Cell Disease." SCID cases are reported beginning March 2013. ALD cases are reported beginning February 2016. Pompe and MPS I cases are reported beginning August 2018.
