This report summarizes the 2006-2015 preterm deliveries among singleton gestations using birth certifi-cate data from South Dakota Vital Records. Preterm deliveries were limited to births from 24 to 36 weeks of gestation. Preterm deliveries were divided into three types: (1) spontaneous labor with intact membranes (spontaneous preterm birth), (2) preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM), and (3) labor induc-tion or caesarean delivery for maternal or fetal indications (medically indicated).
