We used administrative and clinical data from a case‐control study to calculate the costs of surgical site infection and endometritis after cesarean delivery. Attributable costs determined by multivariate generalized least‐squares regression models with the 2 data sets were similar, suggesting that administrative data can be used to calculate infection costs.
