|Title:||Vital Statistics: Linked Birth/Infant Death Data, 1985 Birth Cohort [United States]: New York (New York City)|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Department of Health New York City|
|Abstract:||The New York City linked birth/death data set consists of two files. The first file includes the 1985 birth survivors. The second file includes those infants who died in 1985. To do a birth cohort analysis one needs a) the 1985 birth survivors b) those who were born in 1985 and died in 1985 and c) those who were born in 1985 and died in 1986. This latter population can be taken from the second file of the 1986 New York City linked birth/death data set (study 269). The New York City linked birth/death data are richer than the national linked files. All items included in the national file are available. In addition more detailed location data are available including health area, health district, and zip code. Also available are medical complications during the pregnancy, labor and delivery. Data are gathered on whether scalp sampling, electronic monitoring, ultrasound, and amniocentesis occurred. Financial coverage of the birth and type of service are also available.|
