AbstractThe reduction of the preterm delivery (PTD) rate is a maternal and child health target. Elevated rates have been found among several immigrant groups, but few studies have distinguished between PTD according to the mode of birth start. In addition, migrants' birth outcomes have further been shown to be affected by the time in residence; however, the association to PTD subtypes has not previously been assessed. In this study we examined if the risk of spontaneous and non-spontaneous, or iatrogenic, PTD among immigrants in Norway varied according to the length of residence and the country of birth, and compared with the risks among the majority population.
