Our study shows the impact of hospitals financing on Cesarean section practice in France in 2003. We make use of the hierarchical structure of the data set to take into account as many factors as possible which may influence medical practice. Our results show that private for profit hospitals financed on a fee-for-services basis perform significantly more cesarean sections than public hospitals and private non-for-proft hospitals financed by a global budget. When taking into account the structure the of medical staf, we find that the probability of performing a Cesarean section increases with the number of obstetricians per bed. We also notice that regional diferences in obstetrical practice in France remain. Classification JEL : I12, I18.
