The Spina Bifida statistics for Vermont are as follows: In this state, the number of babies who are affected with this medical condition have not been tracked. Around 206,000 women are of child bearing age and some are at high risk of delivering babies who are affected with this disease. The number of people who are residing in the state of Vermont of Hispanic origin is one percent of the population (or 6000 people).  As a note, women of Hispanic origin are at higher risk than non-Hispanic races of SB.
