About this state dashboard

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics provided a special report on state-level final data to CesareanRates.org. These include maternal morbidity cases, maternal conditions and characteristics of labor and delivery not currently accessible in CDC WONDER. Our organization is publishing these alongside national numbers to inform the public, policy makers, public health experts and the obstetric and midwifery community about state-level progress toward Healthy People 2020 goals for childbirth.
