In 2017, 11.6 percent of births in Colorado were to women with less than 12 years of education (or women without a high school diploma or GED). The share of births in this category has fallen consistently since 2004, when close to 23 percent of births were to women with less than 12 years of schooling. Research demonstrates that a mother’s educational attainment is tied to the health and development of her child. To learn more about these types of births in specific Colorado counties last year, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
