“Records of live singleton births occurring in the province of Alberta between 1997 and 2004 were analyzed. Births were categorized according to outcomes--small-for-gestational-age preterm births, small-for-gestational-age term births, and preterm but not-small-for-gestational-age births.

Associations between a number of maternal and infant indicators and these outcomes were considered.”
