Wellington data confirm the findings of a Christchurch study of infant circumcision with the added finding that social class (measured by mother's education and husband's socio-economic status) is significant in determining outcome. Women are subject to pressure from medical staff, not to have boys circumcised resulting in a lower actual circumcision rate (20 percent) than that anticipated six to eight weeks before delivery (37 percent).
