I saw this article regarding the rising cesarean rate:
C-section Births Hit Record High
But apart from the "One in every three babies in the U.S. now arrives via Caesarian section" part, I couldn't find any actual numbers. Have the 2009 numbers been released, or is this just a report on the currently-reported cesarean rate (31.8%)? I couldn't find any other articles, so I suspect the latter.
