MCAH Bulletin: California Maternal Mortality Rates: A sustained decline in maternal mortality since 2008

The Bulletin updates surveillance data last published through 2010 and provides additional information on maternal mortality through 2013. Data are presented showing declining California trends in comparison to U.S. rates, persistent racial disparities and a slower decline among ‘late’ (43-365 days postpartum) deaths. Potential reasons for the decline are discussed.
