This CD-ROM contains the 2004 Natality Detail public use files and documentation. This collection provides information on live births in the United States and U.S. territories during calendar year 2004. Birth data for the U.S. are limited to births occurring within the U.S. to U.S. residents and nonresidents. Births to nonresidents of the US are excluded from all tabulations by place of residence. Births occurring to US citizens outside of the US are not included in this file. Birth data for Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, and America Samoa are limited to biths occuring within the respective territories. Geographic variables describing residence for births include the state, county, city, county and city population, standard metropolitan statistical area (SMSA), and metropolitan/nonmetropolitan county. Other variables include the race and sex of the child, parent's age, national origin, and race, and mother's educational attainment and marital status. Health data include variables such as live birth order, prenatal care, birth weight, plurality, Apgar score, method of delivery, medical risk factors, complications of labor and/or delivery, abnormal conditions of the newborn, attendant at birth, and place or facility of birth. This data file includes data based on both the 1989 Revision of the U.S. Standard Certificate of Live Birth (unrevised) and the 2003 revision of the U.S. Standard Certificate of Live Birth in 2003 (revised). Pennsylvania and Washington implemented the revised certificate in 2003: five states, Idaho, Kentucky, New York (excluding New York City), South Carolina, and Tennessee implemented as of January 1, 2004. Two additional states, Florida and New Hampshire, implemented the revised birth certificate in 2004, but after January 1. The nine revised states represent 20 percent of all 2004 births. The seven revised states, for which data are available for all of 2004, represent 14 percent of all births. Where comparable, revised data are combined with data from the remaining 41 states and the District of Columbia. (Revised data are denoted by R. Unrevised data are denoted by U in the Rev column of the documentation.)

The collection is located in Room 10, Manning Hall. Users may check out the CDs, subscribing to the honor system. Items may be checked out for a period of two weeks.
