From our 2020 Status Report On Women and Girls In Solano County:

  • In Solano County, while birth outcomes improved through a decline in babies born with low birth weight, there are still disparities found among sub- populations, indicating disproportionate access to essential prenatal education and support.

  • Solano County’s rate of infant mortality (5.7) exceeds the state rate (4.2), although both meet the Healthy People 2020 objective of infant death rates being
    6.0 or below.

  • Prenatal and birth risk factors in Solano County vary by race or ethnicity, with Hispanic/
    Latina and African American women being the least likely to access prenatal care within 6.7% the 1st trimester. Asian/Pacific Islander and African American children are the most likely to be born preterm and with low birth weight.
