North Carolina
Health Data Query System

The North Carolina Health Data Query System is a web-based interactive database system that provides customized reports of health data based on user-specified selection of variables (e.g. age, race, county).

These data are provided for the purpose of statistical reporting and analysis only. The State Center for Health Statistics policy prohibits linking these data with other data sets or information for the purpose of identifying an individual. If the identity of a individual described in a data set is discovered inadvertently, make no disclosure or other use of this information and report the discovery immediately to:

Director of State Center for Health Statistics

The following queries are currently available:

Birth Data

  • Live Birth Data (2011-2015)
    Live Birth Data (2010)
    Live Birth Data (2001-2009)
    Provides birth counts for North Carolina residents classified by year, county, mother's race, age, Hispanic origin and education, child's gender and birth weight, as well as trimester prenatal care began, plurality of birth and gestation period.

    The 2003 U.S. Standard Certificate of Live Birth, which was implemented in North Carolina during 2010, captures prenatal care and education data in a manner that differs from the prior certificate. Due to data compatibility issues that information will not be available for 2010.

    Prenatal care and education data for 2011 and later should not be compared to prior years (2001-2009).

Birth Defect Data

The North Carolina Birth Defects Monitoring Program (BDMP) gathers data on infants who are born with serious congenital anomalies (birth defects) diagnosed within the first year of life. Data are collected by trained field staff who systematically review and abstract hospital medical records, supplemented by information from administrative health databases such as hospital discharge data, vital records and other sources. This intensive method of case ascertainment provides the most complete, accurate and timely data on the incidence of birth defects, thereby enhancing its usefulness to public health programs.

For more information on the North Carolina Birth Defects Monitoring Program, go to the BDMP home page.
