This study examined hospital characteristics and hospital population risk factors and their associations with hospital-specific cesarean section rates in Washington State.
Data were obtained from 1987 birth certificates.
The study population included all hospitals that had 12 or more singleton live births.
Hospital-specific cesarean section rates varied from 0% to 43% and were positively associated with proprietary ownership, size of delivery service, and the proportions of women who had complications or high-birthweight infants.
