Q.

How are the health indicators on PeriStats calculated?

A.

The majority of the health indicators on PeriStats are calculated by the March of Dimes Perinatal Data Center using data obtained electronically from the source agency. Those data not calculated directly by the Perinatal Data Center are obtained directly from the source agency or their publications. Please see the Calculations section of the Web site for a more detailed description of the methods used to calculate data on PeriStats.
