Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study was carried out in a tribal block in Maharashtra in 1987. Socio-economic and obstetric factors commonly known to be associated with unfavourable perinatal outcome were assessed by studying odds ratio, attributable risk, and stepwise multiple regression. Preference for traditional health care, long distance from health post, teenage pregnancy, inadequate schooling, hard physical work, first or fifth and subsequent pregnancy, certain antenatal, intranatal, and postnatal factors emerged as important causes associated with perinatal loss.
