Birth Indicators

Birth indicators are measurements that provide insight into the number of births, as well as factors that might affect the health and developmental needs of these babies. These indicators are important to understand since they show how our community is growing and the health of the children being born here. For the section titled "Number of Births" below, percentages noted for a community represent the percent of births in Hillsborough County as a whole, while those indicated for the County are the percentage of births for the entire State.
