<p>This data was collected from the CDC's Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System. Since the system has been put in place reported pregnancy related deaths have increased from 7.2 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1987 to <a href="https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/hestat/maternal-mortality/2020/maternal-mortality-rates-2020.htm#anchor_1559670094897" target="_blank">23.8 deaths</a> per 100,000s live births in 2020.
