Appendix I_I1: Perinatal Statistics Report 2014: Percentage Distribution of Maternities by Method of Delivery, Primiparous and Multiparous Women, 2005-2014

Presents the distribution of TOTAL, PRIMIPAROUS AND MULTIPAROUS MATERNITIES from 2005-2014 by Method of Delivery. This table outlines per cent method of delivery by total maternities. The Perinatal Statistics Report 2014 is a report on national data on Perinatal events in 2014. Information on every birth in the Republic of Ireland is submitted to the National Perinatal Reporting System (NPRS). All births are notified and registered on a standard four part birth notification form (BNF01) which is completed where the birth takes place. Part 3 of this form is sent to the HPO for data entry and validation. The information collected includes data on pregnancy outcomes (with particular reference to perinatal mortality and important aspects of perinatal care), as well as descriptive social and biological characteristics of mothers giving birth.
