Birth and Death Statistical Reports

The Center for Health Statistics and Informatics have made available tables on births and deaths in California.  These counts are from events registered by the State of California.

  • Birth tables provide counts of births from 2018 to June 2020.
  • Death tables provide counts of deaths from 2017 to June  2020.

Tables have been filtered for valid state and/ or county of occurrence (where the event took place). Please note that within these statistical reports, counts of less than eleven have been masked pursuant to the requirements of the California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS) Data De-Identification Guidelines (DDG).

Birth Tables

* Birth place type is divided into four categories: Hospital, Freestanding Birth Center, Home, and Other/Unknown.​​

Death Tables

** Death place type is divided into six categories: Inpatient, Emergency Room/Outpatient, Decedent's Home, Hospice Facility, Nursing Home/Long Term Care Facility, and Other/Unknown.
