  *Prior to 1902, the statistical year ran from July 1 of the previous year to June 30 of the recording year.

  In the early years, reporting of births and fetal deaths was known to be incomplete.

  Births, deaths, infant deaths, and fetal deaths are reported for New Jersey residents.

  Marriages and divorces which occurred in New Jersey, regardless of residence, are reported.

  Birth, death, marriage, and divorce rates are crude rates computed per 1,000 resident population.

  Infant mortality rates are computed per 1,000 resident live births.

  Fetal death ratios are computed per 1,000 resident live births plus fetal deaths.
