Abstract

Logistic regression models test whether physician demand for leisure affects both total and unplanned cesarean section rates, after controlling for relevant clinical variables. Although nature distributes births and associated problems uniformly, time-dependent dummy variables related to leisure are significant predictors of both total and unplanned c-sections.
