2015-2016 Preliminary Vital Stats Report

PHILADELPHIA — Today, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health released a report summarizing births and deaths for 2015-2016. While there were many encouraging trends such as the continued drop in teen birth rates, overall mortality rates showed a slight increase in 2015 and 2016, perhaps as a result of increases in fatal overdoses involving opioids.
