*Wherever possible–where disaggregated data are available in our data sources–the 2021 Yearbook goes beyond the averages to tell the more complete story of the experience of all of America’s babies, by race and ethnicity; income level; and urbanicity. An overarching and related goal for us is to call for better data collection and reporting.  

Please note that for those indicators that can be examined by race and ethnicity, we use the categories as defined by the Office of Management and Budget and the Census Bureau, in which “Hispanic” ethnicity can be a characteristic of people of any race. “Black” and “White” are used to refer to non-Hispanic members of those racial groups. Except where otherwise indicated, the information presented for several indicators is limited to Black, White, and Hispanic babies and families, because data for American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, and other groups, particularly at a state level, are not available or not reliable to report. For more detailed information, please refer to the State of Babies Yearbook: 2021 Indicator Dictionary.
