The Right Start: Conditions of Babies and Their Families Across the Nation and in America's Largest Cities 2001

This report from the Annie E. Casey foundation provides data on how children born in each state as well as the nation's 50 largest cities fared on eight selected measures of a "right start," including teen births, repeat teen births, births to unmarried women, maternal education, prenatal care, smoking during pregnancy, birthweight, and pre-term births. The report allows users to compare data for the eight measures between states and between cities and provides summary profiles of each of the 50 states and many of their major urban centers. Users may either examine the data in .pdf format in two separate files -- one for cities, one for states -- or generate online their own profiles, line graphs, national maps, rankings, and raw data using a customized data program.
