The environmental and socioeconomic risk factors for preterm delivery were assessed in a West African urban population (Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso).
The study population were 102 cases of preterm delivery matched with 102 controls obtained from 4124 sequential deliveries which occurred between May and October 1989 in the three maternity centres in the city.
The univariate analysis identified the risk factors as age (<20 years), primiparity, marital status (single), low frequency of antenatal visits, death of a previous child and level of education of the mother.
