The association between geographical accessibility to obstetric beds and the early neonatal mortality rate was analyzed to an ecological-level, without considering the potential confusion effect of the variability between municipalities with pregnant women and newborns exposed to risk factors for early neonatal death. Merlo (10) found that the association between neonatal mortality and access to neonatal care remained significant after adjusting for individual level confounders.
