Summary
This study was designed to examine the nature and extent of drug use among women delivering live births in hospitals in Washington, DC, as well as related infant and maternal outcomes. The study had four key objectives: (1) to estimate the prevalence of use of illicit drugs, alcohol, and tobacco among women giving birth to live infants in DC hospitals, (2) to compare rates of drug use among DC resident women giving birth to infants of normal birth weight, intermediate-low birth weight, and very low birth weight, (3) to describe epidemiologic characteristics and health outcomes among drug-using and drug-free mothers and their newborn infants, and (4) to serve as a methodological model for similar hospital-based, maternal drug use research in other metropolitan areas. Interviews were conducted with 1,020 women (766 DC residents and 254 nonresidents) who gave birth to live infants in the eight DC hospitals participating in the study. Medical records for 695 consenting women (527 DC residents and 168 nonresidents) and their infants were abstracted to document maternal and infant medical problems. Data from the questionnaires include prenatal care, health problems during pregnancy, pregnancy history including abortions, gender, premature status, and birth weight of previous liveborn children, lifetime, past year, past month, past week, and pregnancy drug use history, needle use, polysubstance use, treatment history, frequency of use, age at first use, perception of risks, lifetime and past month occurrence of psychological and emotional problems, income and insurance coverage. Drugs covered included cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana/hash, crack cocaine and other forms of cocaine, heroin, and nonmedical use of stimulants, sedatives, tranquilizers, and analgesics. Abstracted data on the mothers include age, marital status, race, education, household composition, discharge diagn... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR02347
