Patterns and predictors of the use of prenatal care in Hawaii were examined by census tract, taking into account summary measures of socioeconomic status, environment at conditions, and aggregated indicators of pregnancy-related risk characteristics of mothers.
The objectives of the study were to identify those census tracts with high levels of inadequate use of prenatal care services; to develop a model, based on census tract characteristics, to explain observed geographic variations in the use of prenatal care services; and to identify for further investigation specific localities with unanticipated patterns of use.
