Description

The column chart shows the top baby first names for 2012. The default filter settings show the top baby names for both males and females. To view the top baby names for a specific gender, change the gender filter. Adjusting the gender filters determines how many names will appear in the chart. Filtering by a count that is too high or too low, may produce unexpected results. For more information, go to http://www.health.ny.gov/statistics/vital_statistics/, or go to the "About" tab.
