Supplemental Slides on 2015 Preliminary US Birth Data

2015 Update Final

In conjunction with the release of the 2015 preliminary US birth data, Birth By the Numbers has released 5 new slides updating key trends through 2015. These include total births, changes in general fertility rates, overall cesarean rates and cesarean rates by race/ethnicity. The slides illustrate the  continuing decline in the Hispanic fertility rate and a leveling in the proportion of all births to non-Hispanic whites.  They also show that the slight decline in the overall cesarean rate was driven by a notable decline in the non-Hispanic white rate, resulting in a growing disparity between the white and black cesarean rates in the U.S.

Each slide includes explanatory notes. They are free to use in classes and talks and we ask only that you credit them to Birth by the Numbers. Download the powerpoint slides here!

U.S. Cesarean Births Trends (1990-2013) PowerPoint Slides

Slide24

Once upon a time (1990) one third of the states in the U.S. delivered less than 20% of their babies via cesarean section and no state even reached a 30% cesarean rate.  Much has changed since then, starting in 2001 when Louisiana became the first state to ever reach a 30% cesarean rate. With each following year the overall U.S. cesarean birth rate continued to increase, with states reaching highs that exceeded 36%. These slides depict the map of the U.S. with its corresponding cesarean birth rates over the years and provides a clear visual of cesarean rate trends between 1990 and 2010.  The slides are freely available for use in classrooms, childbirth education classes, and other settings. Download the PowerPoint file US Cesarean Map Series.
