What is the US Breastfeeding Report Card?

The Breastfeeding Report Card — United States, shows how breastfeeding is being protected, promoted, and supported in each state and allows comparisons across states.  Information for each state on five “outcome” and nine “process” indicators are reported.

The outcome indicators are derived from the breastfeeding goals outlined in Healthy People 2010, a description of the nation’s health priorities. The indicators can be used to:

  • Tell the story of breastfeeding practices in each state. 
  • Monitor progress and celebrate state successes. 
  • Identify opportunities for growth and improvement in breastfeeding protection, promotion, and support within each state.
