Unadjusted annual fertility rate (number of live births per 1000 women aged 15–44 years) by area bin and power plant before and after power plant retirement. Purple bars represent the closest area bin (< 5 km), orange bars the 5-10 km bin, and green bars the 10-20 km bin. Within area bin, the more saturated bars denote the pre-period and the less saturated bars the post-period. The power plants are ordered by the average number of women aged 15–44 years of age living within 20 km, ranging from 820 women near the Portola plant to 464,599 within 20 km of the Hunters Point plant
