Location is where infants first enrolled in WIC. Counts and percentages are based on number of infants on whom breastfeeding information was collected.
* Totals and numbers breastfeeding < 5 are suppressed. Percentages are not calculated for agencies with < 30 participants.
When multiple years are selected, map totals are cumulative.
Note: As the birth cohort matures and participants are interviewed at their next WIC visit, numbers for the most recent years increase and rates may change. Most recent years’ data are considered preliminary until year-end numbers are finalized.
2020 data were finalized in June of 2022.
2021 and 2022 data are preliminary, most recently updated March 2023.
