CERTAIN CONDITIONS ORIGINATING IN THE PERINATAL PERIOD (P00-P96)

Certain conditions originating in the perinatal period (P00-P96) were identified as the underlying cause of 595 deaths registered in 2008. Of these, 337 (57%) were males, and 258 (43%) were females. The number of deaths due to these causes, as well as the proportion of males and females, has remained relatively stable over the past 10 years.

Although the majority of deaths attributed to this cause occur in the neonatal period (within 28 days of birth), this is not always the case. In 2008, 93% of deaths due to Certain conditions originating in the perinatal period occurred in the neonatal period, while 6.6% of these deaths were in older age groups.

Further information on Perinatal deaths can be found in Perinatal Deaths, Australia, 2008 (cat. no. 3304.0).
