Description:
The collection and analysis of national perinatal data is a large undertaking and the compilation of an accurate and comprehensive database on a timely basis is greatly dependent on the commitment and support of those at the forefront of collecting the data. Principal among these are the staff of the maternity hospitals and units as well as the many independent midwives involved in practice. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all who contribute to the accurate recording and timely notification of statistical information for all births nationally. Data on just over 61,989 births were analysed for this report. For each of these records additional information, apart from that required to register each birth, had to be collected in each hospital and by each independent midwife. This information was compiled and validated by the National Perinatal Reporting Sy.st·em (NPRS) within the Health Policy & Information Division to create a national database, which has been analysed for the production of this report of perinatal events. In addition to funding the work of the HIPE & NPRS Unit at the ESRI, the Department of Health and Children continues to provide essential support for the operation and development of the NPRS. We -would like to acknowledge, in particular, the advice and assistance provided by Hugh Magee and Ciara O'Shea in the preparation of this report. We are also very grateful to Dr. Michael Robson, Master, National Maternity Hospital, Dublin for his valuable input and comments on an earlier draft of this report.
