The North Carolina State Center for Health Services (SCHS) collects yearly vital statistics. The Odum Institute holds vital statistics beginning in 1968 for births, fetal deaths, deaths, birth/infant deaths, marriages and divorce. Public marriage and divorce data are available through 1999 only.This study focuses on North Carolina births for 2003. It includes data on the age, education level and marital status of the parents; sex and race of the child; prenatal medical care received; coun ty and hospital of birth; information on the mother's reproductive history including number of previous pregnancies and live births; as well as statistics on the newborn. Beginning in 1988 the birth and fetal death data was separated and new information on the medical history and health of the mother were added to the data collected as well as information on the delivery. The data is strictly numerical, there is no identifying information given about the parents or child.
