PIP: The aim of this study is to develop a sequential examination procedure to be used by low-level health-care practitioners in the identification of high-risk pregnancies in the Republic of Korea. Data collected in 1981 from 3,838 pregnant women are used to determine the significance to birth outcomes of 48 variables selected for consideration. The 26 variables shown to have a high correlation with undesirable outcomes are then included on an examination chart. (summary in ENG)
