Progress in 2018
Note: For fiscal year 2017, the average breastfeeding rate for Louisiana infants participating in the WIC program was 12.6%. The numerators in the reported data were calculated using the number of infants participating at the City of New Orleans WIC clinics that are partially and exclusively breastfed for the reported quarter. The denominator is the total number of infants participating in the City of New Orleans WIC program for the reported quarter. These numbers are retrieved from PHAME which is the Louisiana WIC Electronic Health Record.
