This study was designed to overcome some of the methodological limitations of previous work and investigate the impact of prenatal cocaine use in an understudied population: women using rural county public health units who had minimal access to drug rehabilitation.
Through maternal history, interviews, and urine screens, 172 cocaine users were identified.
Using an independently collected perinatal data base, 168 nonusers were matched for six variables known to affect pregnancy outcome and chosen a priori: race, age, parity, prenatal care, alcohol, and nicotine use.
To avoid chance findings, 10 adverse perinatal outcome variables were identified prospectively.
