The cesarean reports on IPODR are unique in that they are based on the county and zip code of occurrence. All other measures in IPODR are based on the county and zip code of the mother's residence. This is done to reflect cesarean as a "hosptial-based" measure. Note that the cesarean rates may include births to mothers who are not residents of California.
Definitions
A live birth is said to be delivered via first time cesarean section if the mother had no previous deliveries, and the delivery is low-risk.
A live birth is said to be delivered via repeat cesarean section if the delivery is low-risk, and the mother has previously delivered via cesarean.
A Low-Risk delivery is defined as one for a full-term (at least 37 weeks since LMP), singleton (not a multiple pregnancy), vertex fetus (head facing in a downward position in the birth canal).
