Presents total number of births reported to the National Perinatal Reporting System (NPRS) and the total number of perinatal deaths reported to the NPRS and the National Perinatal Epidemiology Centre (NPEC), Cork in 2016. The Perinatal Statistics Report 2016 is a report on national data on Perinatal events in 2016. 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.
