Description:
This report of the Perinatal Reporting System (PAS) has as its principal aim the provision of national statistics on perinatal events and follows the same format as previously. More specifically, the purposes of the report are to describe fundamental social and biological characteristics of mothers and their babies, to report on pregnancy outcomes with particular reference to perinatal mortality, and to highlight important aspects of perinatal care. Although great strides have been made in reducing infant and perinatal mortality during the past twenty years (see Figure 2), the perinatal period continues to be a time of relatively high mortality. Set in this context the importance of monitoring variables related to perinatal health becomes evident. The present report refers to the year 1992 and has 1 00% national coverage of all live and still births. The report contains what might be considered a minimum national data set and is intended to serve as a foundation for the development of basic time series and to allow for the possible addition of further variables and more extensive analysis in future years. It is hoped that the publication of this data will stimulate a wider interest in research in the area of perinatal epidemiology and promote a general recognition of the importance of having an accurate and complete perinatal reporting system.
