Despite substantial evidence linking improved pregnancy outcomes with receipt of prenatal care and recent improvements in prenatal care utilization, specific subpopulations continue to receive less than adequate care.

The study was based on information obtained from birth certificates and a mailed questionnaire to stratified random samples of all women experiencing live births during specified periods in four states.
