The Spina Bifida statistics for Utah are as follows: In this state 4.22 babies are born with this medical condition out of 10,000 births. The data was collected during the years 2001-2005. This shows a decrease in the number of cases when compared to the previous data collected. Around 1,155 people living in Utah are affected with this medical disability.
An estimated 0.8 million women are due to give birth in Utah and some are at risk of delivering babies affected with this health issue. People of Hispanic origin make up 12 percent of the population which comes to 328,370 (Hispanic women are more susceptible than other non-Hispanic races to SB).
