  1. 1 Relative Risks obtained from a Poisson regression model adjusting for site and a single demographic characteristic with general estimating equations adjusting for cluster.
  2. 2 Relative Risks obtained from a multivariate Poisson regression model adjusting for site, maternal age, maternal education, parity, delivery location and infant gender with general estimating equations adjusting for cluster.
