Health E-Stat. Trends in Circumcision for Male Newborns in U.S. Hospitals: 1979–2010
This report provides estimates of male newborn circumcisions performed during the birth hospitalization. Using data from the National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS), annual rates of newborn circumcision are presented for 1979–2010. National and regional rates are shown in both tabular and graphical form, and trends across the 32-year period are discussed. Note that these estimates do not include circumcisions performed outside the hospital setting (e.g., ritual circumcisions) or those performed at any age following discharge from the birth hospitalization. Thus, these rates cannot be used as prevalence estimates for all male circumcisions in the United States.
