Methods—Birth data are obtained from the U.S. certificates of live birth. Mortality data were obtained from the Linked Birth and Infant Death Data Sets for the 1983–91 birth cohorts. Most analyses are based on triplet and other higherorder multiple births (quadruplet and quintuplet and greater births) in the aggregate. (Triplet births comprise about 92 percent of all higher order multiple births.) Triplet and other higher order birth ratios for most variables are computed by combining data for years 1982–84 and 1992–94, and for infant mortality by combining birth cohorts for years 1987–91. Findings—Between 1971 and 1994 the number and ratio of triplet births quadrupled, rising from 1,034 to 4,594, and...
