The PA Birth Centers layer was developed to show the geospatial locations of birth facilities in Pennsylvania. It can be used in various emergency and health related maps. A birth center is a medical facility, specializing in childbirth, that is less restrictive and more homelike than a hospital. When possible, efforts were made to confirm the rooftop location of each birth facility. The accuracy of geocoding is available in Geocoding Certainty attribute field (Geocoding Certainty: Rooftop="00", Street="01", Zip Centroid="04", Not geocoded="99"). Latitude and longitude are recorded in the WGS 1984 coordinate system in decimal degrees.
