This study estimated birth order-specific miscarriage rates and characterized the influence of maternal age using the complete birth history of 90,303 ever-married women from the 1998–2000 Indian National Family Health Survey. Rates of miscarriage in India were low in association with early childbearing, whereas birth order as well as age substantially influenced miscarriage risk.
