    Objectives

    This study examined hospital characteristics and hospital population risk factors and their associations with hospital-specific cesarean section rates in Washington State.

    Methods

    Data were obtained from 1987 birth certificates.

    The study population included all hospitals that had 12 or more singleton live births.

    Results

    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.
