By swebadmin | May 31 2013

The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District (SAMHD) tracks the number of pre-term and low birth weight infants reported by health organizations and produces an annual report on their findings. The new baselines have been reported as percentages, because it reflects the way that birth statistics are reported in the health field and better represents the portion of total births that are pre-term and/or low birth weight. San Antonio witnessed a reduction in both pre-term and low birth weight births from 2010 to 2011.
