State Specific Birth Defects Profiles from NBDPN

  • The National Birth Defects Prevention Network (NBDPN) is a volunteer based organization which addresses issues related to birth defect surveillance, prevention and research. Through collecting state and national data, the NBDPN creates state profile templates which includes data regarding the number of cases and prevalence rates for 12 conditions. The national estimates are based on pooled data from states with active surveillance systems. States have tailored their profiles to include state-specific information on their surveillance systems and how birth defects data are used in their states. These state profiles were last updated February 2012.
