Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Using birth defects registry data, this study examined whether deliveries to residents and non-residents differed. The non-resident rate was significantly higher among those infants/fetuses with more than one major birth defect, pregnancy outcomes that did not result in live births, multiple births, deliveries in the City and County of Honolulu, and pregnancies where prenatal diagnostic procedures had been performed.
