CDC ART Report

The US Center for Disease Control (CDC) monitors many different diseases and health outcomes. Today they released their report on Assisted Reproductive Technology for 2009 today. They have some 2010 data on their website, but the most recent formal report is today’s 2009 publication. While the report seems out of date, live births are recorded so it takes time (e.g. someone who did an IVF cycle at the end of 2009 wouldn’t have a live birth until mid to late 2010).

In 2009, a total of 146,244 ART procedures were reported to the CDC and they resulted in 45,870 live-birth deliveries and 60,190 infants, or 1.4 % of U.S. births.

The full report can be read here.

It’s an interesting read on the trends in ART, how it varies state by state (political undertones here!), and the outcomes of ART pregnancies.
