Birth Statistics

Birth KIC allows you to create statistics for birth outcomes, by year, age-group, sex, race, and county. Select row and column variables to define the table of results. Use filters in optional step 2 to limit results. The most current year is 2015 births. See birth statistics notes and limitations for more information on this dataset and how it was prepared. See the Birth Statistics Notes and Limitations for more information on this dataset and how it was prepared. For map presentation "Birth Map".

NOTE: Beginning 2005 the birth certificate format was updated redefining (additional fields) the information that is recorded for all births. Therefore, data prior to 2005 will not be available for some groups indicators, groups such as "Mother Smoked", "Breastfeeding", "WIC Participation", "Pay Source" and "Diabetes".

Help & Notes Step 1. If you want see your results by a geographic area, you must select county as a row or column variable. If you want to see statistics broken out by year or other variable, you will need to make that variable a row or column variable. You cannot make a variable both a row or column variable. If you select age-group, there are breakouts possible within some age-groups by clicking on the age-group. Help & Notes Step 2. These selections allow you to filter the resulting table to a specific subcategory. If one of Step 2 variables is also a row or column variable, then applying the filter will have no affect on the output table.
STEP 3
STEP 4 - 4.A & 4.B must be completed
Which year(s) would you like to include in your query? 4.A - Category Selection: Select button for State, County, Region or Peer Group Statistics.

2000 2001 2002 2003
2004

All Years| Clear All
State    Counties    Kansas Health Preparedness Regions
Geographical Regions (District Offices)    Peer Groups

4.B - Scroll to the above selected category in the list below and select the area or group of areas of interest. NOTE: Area lists will be "greyed out" and non-selectable except for the areas related to the category selected above. To select multiple areas in a give category, hold "Ctrl" Key down while making choices. See "Help & Notes" for further instructions.


NOTE: Counties in a region/group can be determined by viewing the resource maps page.
Help & Notes Step 3. If year is a row or column variable, then the table will display results by single year. If year is not a row or column variable, than the resulting table will aggregate the number of years you check. Data for new years will be added as it becomes available. Help & Notes Step 4. You must select a geographic category and then highlight the county, region or state value(s) associated with that category each time you make a query, even if you have used your back button from prior results. If you returned to the query page with your back button, reactivate your geographic selection, by clicking on your original category radio button. You can't select areas from more than one category at a time. Create a new query in order to create statistics for a different geographic category.
STEP 5
STEP 6
Select which 'Birth Outcome' you wish to view from the following list. If you have selected 'Birth Outcome' as your row variable, you may select multiple outcomes by holding down the control key and selecting the ones you want with the mouse pointer. You can pick how you want to view the data:
Frequencies only
Frequencies and Rates - per 100
Frequencies and Percents By Column
Frequencies and Percents By Row
Help & Notes Step 5. Select which 'Birth Outcome' you wish to view from the following list. If you have selected 'Birth Outcome' as your row variable, you may select multiple procedures by holding down the control key and selecting the ones you want with the mouse pointer. To view rates, "All Births" must not be part of the "Birth Outcome" selection. Help & Notes Step 6. A table of counts is one way of displaying results, another is rates. Rates per 100 are essentially percentages and enable comparison of time periods or geographic areas of different sizes.
STEP 7
Your search is ready.  Click the submit button.

** You must select an item from both columns in Step 4 **
