Supplementary notes

* 1980 data by race and Hispanic origin are based on a 22-state reporting area representing approximately 90% of births for that year.
All races: Includes races other than white and black and 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 1977 Office of Management and Budget standards. Forty-nine states and the District of Columbia reported multiple-race data for 2015 that were bridged to single-race categories for comparability with other states.
Hispanic: Includes all persons of Hispanic origin of any race.
Statistic is compiled from previous "Birth" reports from the CDC.
