Circumcision Rates

Circumcision is a topic that has vigorous advocates for and against.

 As a statistical agency we don’t have a view on that particular subject but we do track male infant circumcision through our National Hospital Discharge Survey.

Our publication Trends in circumcisions among newborns can be downloaded as can this table showing numbers of circumsicisions and the percentage of infant boys receiving the procedure from 1979 through 2005.
