Data from married women who participated in the 1980 National Natality Survey and the National Fetal Mortality Survey were used for a case-control study of antepartum and intrapartum stillbirth.
Risk factors were identified by comparing antepartum deaths and intrapartum deaths to livebirths in separate logistic regression analyses.
Risk of antepartum death was increased among black mothers, those having their first delivery, those aged 35 years or more, and those with less education.
Smoking cigarettes was associated with increased risk.
For intrapartum deaths, total abstention from alcohol during pregnancy was associated with increased risk in the best-fitting logistic model, as was first delivery.
