CBInfo: California Birth Information System

CBInfo is a software package developed by FHOP to improve access to and utilization of birth certificate data in a standard format that would allow comparisons within and across counties. It was developed to accommodate major revisions in the California Birth Certificate instituted in 2007, which resulted in adding new elements and changing the format. CBInfo has maintained the strength of its predecessor (EpiBC) in importing, reviewing, reporting, graphing, and mapping birth certificate data, but it includes a host of new pre-programmed reports for the new fields in the 2007 and later birth certificate. CBInfo is an application within the CDC's public domain software EpiInfo; you must first install EpiInfo before installing and using CBInfo.
