Abstract: The fetal death data file is maintained by calendar year. The information on fetal deaths was abstracted from the Report of Fetal Death forms received from the States by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and this file contains a record for each form received. Data from New York, excluding New York City, were submitted in machine readable form. All other data were coded and keyed by the U.S. Bureau of the Census. Data includes age, race, marital status, education, prenatal visits and timing of mother; age, race, and education of father; information about the pregnancy includes number of pregnancy, terminations of pregnancies, and live birth order.
