Abstract

Incidence of NAS has increased in the US from 1.5 to 8.0 cases per 1000 hospital births from 2004 to 2014. Among 28 states with available data, Maine had the third highest annual change in incidence rate from 2009 to 2012, with 30.4 NAS cases per 1000 hospital births. As rates of NAS appeared to be approximately 5 times higher in Maine than the national average, this warranted further examination of trends of NAS among hospital births in Maine using more recent data.
