  1. Fulltext. An evaluation of the Kessner adequacy of prenatal care index and a proposed adequacy of prenatal care utilization index.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The assessment of the adequacy of prenatal care utilization is heavily shaped by the way in which utilization is measured.

    Although it is widely used, the current major index of utilization, the Kessner/Institute of Medicine Index, has not been subjected to systematic examination.

    This paper provides such an examination.

    Methods

    Data from the 1980 National Natality Survey are used to disaggregate the components of the Kessner Index for detailed analysis.
