 4. Births to Mothers With No High School Degree
Introduction
Low socioeconomic status has previously been shown to be a risk factor for poor birth outcomes. The percent of births for which the payer for labor and delivery was Medi-Cal and the percent of mothers with no high school degree are used as indicators of low socioeconomic status. Medi-Cal is the name of the federal Medicaid program in California.
Definitions
Medi-Cal Payer
This refers to any birth record indicating that Medi-Cal or Medicare paid for labor and delivery. Note that Medi-Cal is the name of the federal Medicaid program in California.
No high school degree
Prior to 2006, the birth certificate included information on the number of years of education completed by the mother. IPODR considered a mother who completed 11 or less years of schooling as having "no high school degree." Starting in 2006, the actual degree information was captured for the birth certificate, and that information is used in IPODR from that year forward.
