Data Dashboards

Policymakers and public health leaders need a clear picture of how their region is performing in relation to others. Using the best available data, our organization created the first in a series of dashboards highlighting regional successes and opportunities for improvement.

State-level cesarean utilization dashboard

data-dashboard-state-cs-uti.jpg

Data from CDC National Center on Health Statistics was organized to create state dashboards with the following elements: total cesarean rate, NTSV (low-risk) cesarean rate, repeat cesarean rate and the totals of all methods of delivery in 2016. The ten states with the highest repeat cesarean rates are included on this page, ranked from highest to lowest. This high-level overview is a first step in assessing regionalization of care for patients with a prior cesarean history.

Place your cursor over each segment to view the percentage or total.

  • Primary= first cesarean birth
  • Repeat= cesarean birth with a history of prior cesarean
  • VBAC= vaginal birth with a history of prior cesarean
  • Vaginal= vaginal birth with no history of prior cesarean
  • NTSV= restricted to the nulliparous population with term, singleton and vertex births
  • Unknown= any method of delivery reported as unstated or unknown
