Variables associated with the Robson Ten-Group Classification System in the State of São Paulo, Brazil
Keywords:Cesarean Section, Socioeconomic Factors, Health Information Systems
This study evaluated the associations between the groups of the Robson Classification System and maternal sociodemographic characteristics among neonates in São Paulo State, Brazil, 2016. The groups 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 tend to be associated to cesarean delivery and more privileged educational opportunities, while the groups 1, 4 and 3 tend to be associated to vaginal delivery and less privileged educational opportunities. These results reinforce the notion that strategies for reduction of cesarean deliveries should go beyond a biomedical model focused on biological factors, and should also consider the social factors that characterize the living conditions of people.
