Ethnicity, Age, and Income Play a Role in Maternal Morbidity Rates

Authors of a recent statistical brief published by the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project have found trends associated with age, race, and income contribute to severe maternal morbidity. In the analysis, “severe maternal morbidity” was defined by 21 indicators identified by the CDC. According to the brief, from 2006 to 2015 the rate of severe maternal morbidity increased 45%.  Rates were highest among women over 40, and in 2015 in-hospital mortality was three times higher for black women than for white women. Severe maternal morbidity rates were also higher amongst women who were using Medicaid or who were uninsured compared to those using private insurance.
