SOURCE: CDC/NCHS The Matched Multiple Birth File Allows for research of characteristics of SETS of multiple gestation pregnancies Includes ALL records reported in twin, triplet and quadruplet deliveries from 1995-2000 NCHS birth, fetal death and linked birth/infant death files
SOURCE: CDC/NCHS The NEW Matched Multiple Birth File 325,516 SETS of twins 325,516 SETS of twins 12,157 SETS triplets 12,157 SETS triplets 760 SETS of quadruplets 760 SETS of quadrupletsOR > 699,000 individual records
SOURCE: CDC/NCHS Definition: multiple delivery A multiple delivery or multiple gestation pregnancy may include any combination of live births and fetal deaths; all products of the pregnancy which are DELIVERED at any point in the pregnancy are counted. A multiple delivery or multiple gestation pregnancy may include any combination of live births and fetal deaths; all products of the pregnancy which are DELIVERED at any point in the pregnancy are counted.
SOURCE: CDC/NCHS Example: 1 fetal death (≥ 20 wks) + 2 live births = 1 triplet pregnancy or triplet SET
