a The number of deaths for infant mortality is based on a record weight from the linked birth and infant death file which adjusts for the approximately 2–3% of records each year that cannot be linked to their corresponding birth certificates. Therefore, because of number rounding, the number of deaths for subgroups may not add to the total.
b Education data are for mothers age 20 and older only, excluding data from the following States: FL, ID, KS, KY, NE, NH, NY (not including NYC), PA, SC, TN, TX, and WA, that implemented the 2003 Revisions to the U.S Standard Birth Certificate.
