Total resident live births is a count of births to women who live in Florida. When displayed as a rate, it is the number of births per 1000 population.
The birth rate is an item of interest because it provides a standardized measure for monitoring the general increase or decrease in births. When applied specifically to age groups, such as teens, or to geographic areas, such as states, counties or countries, one can make comparisons between them.
In 2020, in Alachua County, the rate per 1,000 total population that were Resident Live Births (All) was 9.4 compared to Florida at 9.7. Since the oldest age of the mother at birth varies, an ending age of 999 is used to retrieve all records up to and including the oldest age.
Alachua County is in the third quartile for this measure. This means that relative to other counties in Florida, the situation occurs less often in about one half of the counties, and it occurs more often in about one quarter of the counties. The map illustrates county data by quartile. It is shown when there are at least 51 counties with data for this measure.Links: Healthy People 2030|More Health Resources
