** Number is too small to calculate a reliable rate.          
The Total column includes other non-Hispanic races and race not stated.          
Rates are computed per 1,000 age-, race-, ethnicity-specific female population.          
Rates for all ages are computed by relating total births, regardless of age of mother, to women aged 15-44 years.          
First Birth is determined from the sum of number of live births now living + number of live births now dead on the birth certificate. If either of these is not stated, the sum is considered not stated.
