This study, which was predominantly funded by AHCPR but was also supported through the HRSA’s ORHP, was part of a large multifaceted project that examined low-risk obstetric care in Washington State through surveying obstetric providers and abstracting detailed information about their patients. This study used the provider as the unit of analysis. Differences in resource use (e.g., visits, tests, and procedures) between rural and urban obstetricians and between rural and urban family physicians were examined in detail.
