Other variables include the race and sex of the child, the age of the mother, mother's education, place of delivery, person in attendance, and live birth order. The natality tabulations in the documentation include live births by age of mother, live-birth order and race of child, live births by marital status of mother, age of mother, and race of child, and live births by attendant and place of delivery.
