The NPDC is a national population-based cross-sectional collection of data on pregnancy and childbirth. The data are based on births reported to the perinatal data collection in each state and territory in Australia. Midwives and other birth attendants complete notification forms for each birth using information obtained from mothers and from hospital or other records. A standard de-identified extract is provided to the AIHW annually.
