Birth and Death Statistical Reports

The statistical reports on this page will no longer be updated after December 2020. Current statistical reports are available through the California Vital Data (Cal-ViDa) Query Tool and California Health and Human Services Open Data Portal. Please use these resources for future 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 November 2020.
  • Death tables provide counts of deaths from 2017 to November 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.


Additional Resources

  • Cal-ViDa can be used to create a variety of birth and death reports. Users can generate reports with statewide counts as well as counts by county, city, or ZIP Code. Selected demographic variables, such as race/ethnicity and education level, and health indicators, such as birthweight and cause of death, are also available

  • Tabular Reports (PDF) cost less than the creation of custom data files for research requests. These data are subject to cost recovery pursuant to California Health and Safety Code Section 102230. Once the application is received and reviewed, staff will provide a cost estimate and the approximate time needed to prepare the report.
  • Research applications require approval from the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects (CPHS). This process can take approximately 2-4 months after CDPH receives a complete application package.
