This information was accessed on April 9, 2010 from the database titled 2008 Final Database on the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development web site. Ninety-nine facilities reported cesarean rates in excess of the national average of 32.3% in based on the preliminary data for 2008.

California’s cesarean rate has risen steadily since the mid-1990s, when the state rate was 20.6%.

 

Important: The California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development states on its web site that users should “be aware that financial and utilization data products are based on a dynamic database that is constantly being updated. As a result, the same data item for a facility may change over time or be different between products.”

While some facilities report all cesareans, others do not include cesareans performed for certain reasons in their report to the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development. For example, some facilities might exclude any or all of the following from their report: cesareans for abnormal presentation, preterm birth, fetal death, multiple gestations or breech presentation. Their total cesarean rate would therefore be higher than what they report.
