The figures are based on data which was collected during the years 2001-2005. This figure shows a decrease in the number of babies having this birth defect when compared to the previous data.
Around 1,362 people are presently living with this medical problem in the state of Oklahoma. An estimated 1.1 million women are due to give birth and some are a high risk of delivering babies who are affected with this health issue.
