The prevalence of noncaesarean section uterine surgical scars in a general obstetric population was 3.0 of 1000 deliveries and among nulliparae 3.4 of 1000 deliveries, calculated from population data of all delivery records in New South Wales from 2005 to 2011. As the population prevalence is low, women with a noncaesarean section uterine surgical scar are unlikely to impact the analyses of factors associated with caesarean section.
