1Percent of all live births by cesarean delivery.
2Number of primary cesareans per 100 live births to women who have not had a previous cesarean.
3Number of vaginal births after previous cesarean delivery per 100 live births to women with a previous cesarean delivery.
(Example: In 1996, 15,165 deliveries were to women who were reported to have had a previous cesarean: 5,405 vaginal deliveries after at least one previous cesarean and 9,760 who had a repeat cesarean. When the births delivered vaginally after a previous cesarean, 5,405, are divided by the total deliveries to women who had had a previous cesarean, 15,165, and the result multiplied by 100, the rate of vaginal birth after a previous cesarean becomes 35.6 per 100 live births to women with a previous cesarean).
