Definitions of included indicators:

  • Prematurity rate: The number of live births with a gestational age less than 37 weeks, per 100 live births. Formula = [Number of live births with gestational age less than 37 weeks / Number of live births] * 100.
  • Low birthweight births: Live births of a birthweight less than 2500 grams (5lbs. 8oz.) per 100 live births. Formula = [Number of live births under 2,500 grams / Number of live births] * 100. 
  • Infant Mortality: Formula = [Number of infant deaths / Live births] * 1,000.
  • Adequacy of prenatal care: The Kotelchuck measure is an index of adequacy of prenatal care based upon month of entry, number of prenatal visits and gestational age of infant at birth. It uses American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists standards for number of visits. The number of births by the “inadequate” value from the Kotelchuck Index, per 100 live births. Formula = [Number of Live Births with Inadequate Kotelchuck Value / Number of Live Births] * 100.
