Last year’s report is still available – Right Start in Detroit 2009: Maternal and Infant Well-Being in the City of Detroit, 2000-2007 is an analysis of birth outcomes broken down by United Way Subcommunities.  The data reported in this analysis conform to those covered by The Right Start in Michigan, a review of eight indicators of maternal and infant well-being. The report confirmed that a newborn’s life-long prospects of health and success are not only tied to maternal health, but also to the health of the communities in which they live.
