Definition: Percentage of infants whose mothers received prenatal care during the first trimester of pregnancy, by race/ethnicity of mother (e.g., among California infants born to Hispanic/Latina women in 2016, 81.5% had mothers who received prenatal care in the first trimester).
Data Source: California Dept. of Public Health, Birth Statistical Master Files (Feb. 2019).
Footnote: County-level data reflect the mother's county of residence, not the county in which the birth occurred. Data exclude infants for whom prenatal care information is missing. The notation S refers to data that have been suppressed because there were fewer than 20 infants in that group whose mothers received prenatal care in the first trimester. N/A means that data are not available. Use caution when comparing data before and after 2000 as race/ethnicity definitions changed that year.
