Breastfeeding Report Cards

The CDC Breastfeeding Report Card provides national- and state-level data to help public health practitioners, health professionals, community members, child care providers, and family members work together to protect, promote and support breastfeeding. The Report Card indicators measure types of support in key community settings as well as the most current data on the breastfeeding goals outlined in Healthy People 2020.

Starting in 2014, the Breastfeeding Report Card will be published every two years; however, the breastfeeding data will continue to be released annually on the DNPAO National Immunization Survey web page and on DNPAO’s online Data, Trends, & Maps database. The latest rates reflect breastfeeding practices among U.S. infants born in 2013 and are based on National Immunization Survey data from 2014 and 2015.
