This study compared birth certificate data on the amount, timing, and adequacy of prenatal care with the same data abstracted from the prenatal clinic records of 2,032 women who attended a health department prenatal clinic in northeast Georgia from 1980 to 1988.
Overall accuracy was poor.
Only 14.3% (n=291) of the records completely agreed on the total number of visits, while approximately 36% (n=738) and 53% (n=1,081) agreed within one visit and two visits, respectively.
Complete agreement for month and trimester prenatal care began was 31.1% (n=632) and 50.6% (n=1,202), respectively.
Because of the small geographic region included in the current study, the generalizability of these findings to other populations may be limited.
