CONGENITAL AND CHROMOSOMAL ABNORMALITIES (Q00-Q99)

Congenital and chromosomal abnormalities such as Down's Syndrome, Edward's syndrome, Cerebal Palsy and congenital heart malformations (Q00-Q99) accounted for 547 deaths in 2006, of which 305 (56%) were deaths of males and 242 (44%) were of females.


The majority of these deaths occurred within the first year of life (283 or 52%), however, the remainder were spread relatively evenly over other age groups. Median age at death due to Congenital and chromosomal abnormalities was 1.0 years. This is 79.3 years lower than the median for all deaths (80.3 years).


Congenital malformations of the heart and blood vessels (Q20-Q28) accounted for 194 deaths or 36% of all deaths due to Congenital and chromosomal abnormalities. The median age for this cause was 28.0 years.
