Supplementary notes

All races include births to race and Hispanic origin groups not shown separately, such as white Hispanic and black Hispanic women, and births with origin not stated.
Race and Hispanic origin are reported separately on birth certificates. Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. Race categories are consistent with the 1977 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standards. Forty-nine states and the District of Columbia reported multiple-race data in 2015 that were bridged to the single-race categories of the 1977 OMB standards for comparability with other states. Multiple-race reporting areas vary for 2007, 2014, and 2015.
In 2016, the category "Asian or Pacific Islander" was broken down into two separate categories "Asian" and "Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander".
Figures from 2015 and earlier were taken from the previous year's report.
