h) Branches total dry matter production (BTDMP): obtained by the equation: RTDMP = FBP x BDMP
The population-based estimates in this report represent an improvement over the hospital-based estimates from BDMP
(2) because the source population for the denominator is defined on the basis of maternal residence at delivery.
The CDC has published three estimates of FAS rates in the United States based on passive surveillance via the BDMP
