    Where do I research 'Birth Trends' and stats for Sonoma and Marin Counties?

    Blessings All,

    I'm doing some research for a business plan / grant writing adventure that requires knowledge of Sonoma County and Marin County birth statistics such as:

    *how many births are happening each year

    how many are experienced

    *at home
    *in the hospital

    how many are

    *unattended births
    *attended by midwives
    *have doulas present

    and information around

    *the cesarean rate

    Is anyone out there a Statistics Deva or Devo?

    I'd love to get a lead on where to find this sort of stuff.

    Thanks,
    Grace

    The California State Center for Health Statistics should be able to help you with some of this. They get copies of all of the birth and death certificates from all the counties in the state. They also track the data on the confidential portion of the birth certificate.

    do a search for their web site and they should have a list of pre-fab reports available. they might be able to do a custom search, but it will not be cheap.

    I don't know if this has info as specific as you're seeking but kids data is unmatched, in my opinion on statistical interpretations* and in the past they have conducted their own original research which is stellar from a research pov. They're local to the bay area which makes a big impact too.

    Searchable & free!

    Kidsdata: Data and Resources about the Health of Children

    *and up to date info --beware that if you rely on census conglomerates alone it's going to be largely out of date from 2000. I would advise relying on the 2003 PUMs data (microdata sampling of 5% --it's actually way more accurate than the general census...but don't get me started on the census inaccuracy/algorithms) if you're going this route. Of course if you're jsut making a case for support accuracy may not be that important...

    Best!
