The Spina Bifida statistics for Texas are as follows: About 3.58 babies out of 10,000 babies are affected with this disease. The data was taken during the years of 2000-2004. The data shows a decrease in the number of SB cases when compared to the previous data collected. Around 8,709 people in the state have been diagnosed with this medical condition.

An estimated 7.5 million women are of child bearing age and some will have babies affected with this health issue. Around 36 percent of the population which equals 8.7 million are of Hispanic origin (Hispanic women are more susceptible than other non-Hispanic races to SB).

The state of Texas has twelve SB clinics. In Houston and San Antonio there are two SB clinics each. The remaining eight SB clinics can be found in Dallas, Brownville, Austin, El Paso, Lackland, Galveston, Lubbock, and Fort Worth.

There are two SB Association that offer support services in the state. They are the SBA of North Texas, in Garland and the SB Association of the Houston Gulf Coast, in Houston.
