Birth Data

The Birth Data is composed of variables extracted from birth certificates. State laws require birth certificates to be completed for all births. Birth certificates contain important health information about the mother, the baby, and the birth, along with demographic information about the parents. The information is captured by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health, Office of Health Status Monitoring as part of the National Vital Statistics System in collaboration with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
