TABLE 5.4: Perinatal Statistics Report 2015: Cause of Death by ICD-10 Chapter and Subcategories, Mortality Rates and Numbers (Total), 2015

Presents the distribution of TOTAL, SINGLETON AND MULTIPLE PERINATAL DEATHS for 2015 by Cause of Death by ICD-10 Chapter and Subcategories. This table outlines perinatal mortality rates and numbers (total) by cause of death for stillbirths, early neonatal deaths and total perinatal deaths. The Perinatal Statistics Report 2015 is a report on national data on Perinatal events in 2015. 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.
