In this study, our researchers used data from the National Inpatient Sample to analyze severe maternal morbidity and mortality during childbirth hospitalizations among rural and urban residents. After controlling for sociodemographic factors and clinical conditions, we found that rural residents had a 9 percent greater probability of severe maternal morbidity and mortality, compared with urban residents.
