NOTES


IN THIS ISSUE

This publication presents statistics on the number of fetal, neonatal and total perinatal deaths for reference year, by state or territory of usual residence of Australia, sex and cause of death classified to the World Health Organisation's International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Version 10 of the ICD has been introduced from 1999.

The series of spreadsheets associated with this publication includes 2008 (preliminary) and 2007 (revised) perinatal cause of death data for Australia and selected states and territories. Data are published in this release on a reference year basis by state or territory of usual residence of Australia, sex and cause of death.

Two Technical Notes are presented in this publication:

  • Perinatal Deaths Process Improvement
  • Revisions Process

Users should read these Technical Notes in order to understand changes in ABS processes which may have impacted on 2007 and 2008 data.
