Premature Birth Report Card grades are assigned by comparing
the 2016 preterm birth rate in a state or locality to the March of
Dimes goal of 8.1 percent by 2020. The Report Card highlights
priority areas for action with city and racial/ethnic disparities data
and a disparity ratio. Report Cards are intended to spur action to
improve equity and reduce preterm birth, with the goal of giving
every mother and baby a fair chance for a healthy pregnancy and
birth.
