research question1
Research Question

Homicide tops list of pregnancy risks

Md. study shows higher rate for new, expectant mothers;

Jonathan Bor. The Sun. Baltimore, Md.: Mar 21, 2001. pg. 1.A

“Homicide has emerged as the leading cause of death among Maryland women

during pregnancy or in the months that follow - outstripping heart problems,

bleeding and other medical causes, state health officials said yesterday. Drawing

from a wider array of statistical sources than previously used, researchers found

that homicide accounted for 50 of 247 deaths between 1993 and 1998.

Homicides surpassed cardiovascular problems and blood clots, known as

embolisms, traditionally regarded as leading risk factors of pregnancy.

The study, reported in today\'s Journal of the American Medical Association, raised

concerns that women involved in abusive relationships might be at higher risk for

violence - even death - once they become pregnant or bear a child.”

research question2
Research Question

Enhanced Surveillance for Pregnancy-Associated Mortality--Maryland, 1993-1998.(Statistical Data Included).

JAMA, The Journal of the American Medical Association 285.11 (March 21, 2001): p1455. (3785 words) 

Author(s): Isabelle L. Horon and Diana Cheng.

Abstract: Homicide is the leading cause of death among pregnant women and new mothers in Maryland, followed closely by cardiovascular diseases. This was the conclusion of researchers who analyzed death certificate data of reproductive-age women, live birth and fetal death records, and medical examiner records in Maryland between 1993 and 1998.
