The Spina Bifida statistics for Colorado are as follows: Approximately 3.42 babies out of 10,000 births are affected with this disease at child birth. The statistics were collected in the years from  2001-2005. It is estimated that 1,689 people have been affected with this health problem and are residing in the state of Colorado.

In Colorado, women who are of child bearing age are estimated at 1.6 million. Hispanic/Latino women make up 20 percent of the population in Colorado. It is this group who are most likely to give birth to babies with this medical condition. That percentage (20) comes to one million women living in the state.

The Spina Bifida Association of Colorado is mainly responsible for providing help and support in the state of Colorado. There is one SB clinic in Colorado Springs and one more in Aurora which offers help to patients suffering from this health issue. At the University of Colorado, Denver the clinic registers the names of those affected with SB.
