Annual data about infants' birth weight and race/ethnicity.

  • Low Birth Weight (<2500 g) Infants by Calendar Year and Race/Ethnicity (PDF: 102 KB: 1 page)
    This summary report provides total for all infants born in Minnesota, a total of infants participating in MN-WIC, and a count and percent of infants with low birth weight (under 2500 g) by ethnicity (Non-Hispanic/Hispanic) and race for calendar years 2005 to 2013. (2013 displays initial counts.) Counts by race are not unduplicated - some data has been suppressed and participants who self-selected more than one race have been counted within multiple race categories.
