These dynamic data displays provide an overview of mothers and babies, maternal demographics, the antenatal period and labour and birth. Data are currently presented for the years 2010–2013, using data from the AIHW National Perinatal Data Collection. Some trend data from 2002 are also presented, where data are available. This release includes updates to Overview and demographics module and Antenatal period module. Labour and birth is a new module and displays data that have not previously been presented in the perinatal data portal.
Please note, only 2013 data have been updated in this release, as this is the most recent year of NPDC data available. Data for earlier years will be updated in the Overview and demographics and Antenatal modules and added to the Labour and birth module in 2016.
Please make your selection from the modules below. Data will open in a new window.
Charts and tables can be customized according to maternal characteristics and geography. Instructions for navigation are offered within data displays.
Sections in this module are disaggregated by state/territory, maternal age, Indigenous status, parity, hospital sector and accommodation type, remoteness and SEIFA.
