The original data were posted as reported and certified by health care facilities to the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), Florida Center for Health Information and Policy Analysis. This data is effective as of June 6, 2011. Additional calculations were made for this table to determine total deliveries (cesarean plus vaginal) and that sum was used as the denominator to determine the total proportion of cesarean sections performed at each hospital.
