The question is whether mothers chose a particular location, such as a hospital or their own home for a home
birth, as a function of their academic or nonacademic education level, and whether there is a direct relationship
to that education level and choice. This question is relevant to ask because births in nonphysician settings are
associated with increased complication rates, and increased maternal education could thus be considered a
protective factor, if a difference is found.6
