Indicator Report - Birth Rates

Why Is This Important?

Birth rate is the number of live births in a given year per 1,000 persons in the total population. Tracking birth rate patterns among Utah and U.S. women as a whole is critical to understanding population growth and change in this country and in Utah. Birth rates directly relate to a population's need for timely and appropriate preconception, prenatal, neonatal, and postpartum care.
