  • FMRs shown here are for fetal deaths of ≥24 weeks of gestation to control for differences in state reporting requirements and improve state-to-state comparisons. Fetal deaths with no stated period of gestation are proportionally distributed to <24 and ≥24 weeks.

  • a Infant deaths (<1 year) per 1000 live births.

  • b Neonatal deaths (<28 days) per 1000 live births.

  • c Fetal deaths of ≥24 weeks of gestation per 1000 live births plus specified fetal death.
