Bah, it came too late to save me from my unnecesarean. But yay! Tee next one should be my HB that I lost and it'll be my VBAC!

Glad for the states that actually went down! AR (where I live) is still pretty high, but came down 0.5%! It's a start, anyway! Let's hope this trend keeps up!

I hate to be that annoying kid in the back of the classroom, but I think you may have accidentally switched the data from 2009 and 2010:

Birthkeeper, this is copied and pasted from the report “Births: Preliminary Data for 2010” (State Tables)". Note that 2010 is listed to the left of 2009.
