In 2011, South Dakota experienced a slight increase over the previous year in the number of live births with one in four births representing minorities. Paralleling national data, the rate of births per 1,000 15 to 17-year-olds has decreased to 1.65. The spike in low birth weight observed in 2010 was reversed in 2011 with 6.3 percent of all newborns weighing less than 2,500 grams compared to 8.1 percent nationally. The state's infant mortality rate (6.3 per 1,000 live births) also declined in 2011 but remained higher than the national rate of 6.1 per 1,000 live births. Though progress is noted in decreasing the ratio of minority to white infant deaths, a trend persists with South Dakota's minority post neonatal mortality rate remaining consistently higher than that noted for the nation.
