Birth Query Module Health Indicator Selection

The birth record data is composed of variables extracted from birth certificates from live births as captured by the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health, Office of Health Status Monitoring (OHSM). The birth record contains important information about the birth, the baby and the parents. The data can be viewed by the mother's place of residence which will include only babies born to women who reside in Hawaiʻi, or by infant's place of birth which includes all infants born in Hawaiʻi regardless of the place of residence of the mother. For babies who are adopted at birth, the birth record information about the mother is for the adopted mother, not the birth mother. Cell size restrictions are applied when the numerator (number of births) is between 1 and 9. For statistical reliability, rates are not calculated when the numerator is less than 20.
