Summary
This data collection consists of six data files, which can be used to determine infant mortality rates in the United States in 1995. For the first time, data for Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam were included. Another change in 1995 is a change in format of the linked files. They are now released in two different formats, period data and birth cohort data. This collection represents the period data. Parts 1 and 2 are the Denominator files for the United States and for Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam, respectively. These files consist of all births in 1995. Variables in these files include year of birth, state and county of birth, characteristics of the infant (age, sex, race, birth weight, gestation), characteristics of the mother (Hispanic origin, race, age, education, marital status, state of birth), characteristics of the father (Hispanic origin, race, age, education), pregnancy items (prenatal care, live births), and medical data. A new variable in the Denominator files for 1995 is clinical estimate of gestation. Parts 3 and 4 are the Numerator files. They provide records of all infant deaths that occurred in 1995 linked to their corresponding birth certificates, whether the birth occurred in 1995 or 1994. Variables in these files include age at death, underlying cause of death, autopsy, place of accident, infant death identification number, exact age at death, day of birth and death, and month of birth and death. New variables in the linked Numerator files for 1995 include a weight and a clinical estimate of gestation. Parts 5 and 6 are the "unlinked" files. They consist of infant death records that could not be linked to their corresponding birth records
