The Spina Bifida statistics for Virginia are as follows: In this state 3.95 babies are born with this medical condition out of 10,000 births. The data was collected during the period of 2001-2005. That shows an increase in the number of babies who have been born with this health issue when compared to the previous data.

Around 3,069 people are residing in Virginia with this medical problem. An estimated 1.7 million women are in the family way and are at some risk of delivering babies with SB. The number of people of Hispanic origin is 7 percent of the population or approximately 500,000 people (Hispanic women are more susceptible than other non-Hispanic races to SB).

There are five SB clinics located in Virginia. They are located in New Kent, Richmond, Norfolk, Charlottesville, and Fairfax. Two SB Associations provide support services and resources in the state. They are the SB Association of the Mid-Atlantic Region and the SB Association of the Roanoke Valley.
