South Atlantic Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Annual meeting. Orlando FL USA, 1994/01/15.
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the influence of evolving obstetric and public health care on the occurrence of low birth weight and preterm birth in a large population.
Birth statistics of 2,049,970 live births (25.1% nonwhite) and 156,009 low-birth-weight infants (39.8% nonwhite) were analyzed.
Between 1967 to 1971 and 1977 to 1981 the incidence of infants weighing ¾2500 gm declined from 85.5 to 74.4 per 1000 live births.
The percentage of 500 to 1500 gm infants delivered at perinatal centers in Virginia increased from 41.8% in 1977 to 1981 to 64.9% in 1987 to 1991.
