MAIN CONDITION IN MOTHER

Perinatal deaths differ from general deaths because a condition may be reported in the record for the fetus/infant, the mother, or for both.

A maternal condition was reported in 861 (32.2%) of the 2,671 perinatal deaths registered in 2009, compared to 850 (34.0% ) of the 2,501 perinatal deaths registered in 2008.

In 2009, Fetus and newborn affected by maternal complications of pregnancy (P01) was the most frequently reported maternal cause, accounting for 339 or 12.7% of perinatal deaths, compared to 287 or 11.5% in 2008.

Fetus and newborn affected by complications of placenta, cord and membranes (P02) accounted for 268 or 10.0% of perinatal deaths in 2009, compared to 318 or 12.7% in 2008.

(a) Perinatal deaths are all fetal deaths (at least 20 weeks gestation or at least 400 grams birth weight) plus all neonatal deaths. See Glossary for further information.
(b) Male deaths include those perinatal deaths of sex indeterminate.
(c) Data cells with small values have been randomly assigned to protect the confidentiality of individuals. As a result, some totals will not equal the sum of their components. Cells with a zero value have not been affected by confidentialisation.
(d) Causes of death data for 2007 have undergone two years of revisions. See Explanatory Notes 28-32 in Causes of Death, Australia, 2009 (cat. no. 3303.0).
(e) Causes of death data for 2008 have been revised and are subject to further revisions. See Explanatory Notes 28-32 in Causes of Death, Australia, 2009 (cat. no. 3303.0).
(f) Causes of death data for 2009 are preliminary and subject to a revisions process. See Explanatory Notes 28-32 in Causes of Death, Australia, 2009 (cat. no. 3303.0).
(g) These data represent all perinatal deaths with a condition in the mother.
