This publication brings together statistics for live births and fertility in Australia. Data refer to births registered during the calendar year shown, unless otherwise stated.

The content of this publication has been reviewed, with the aim of reducing duplication of data. Tables previously presented in the printed publication (in Adobe PDF format) have been removed and are now available as data cubes (in Microsoft Excel format).

Changes in ABS processing of data collected by state/territory Registrars of Births, Deaths and Marriages for 2007 have resulted in the availability of improved information on previous births to mothers. See paragraphs 41 to 44 of the Explanatory Notes for more information.

In 2007, changes in processing of birth registrations in some states, particularly Queensland (see paragraph 29 of the Explanatory Notes), and amendments to the A New Tax System (Family Assistance) Act 1999 requiring the registration of, or application for registration of, the birth of a child as a condition for applying for the Baby Bonus will have affected the data.
