The scope of the Perinatal Mortality National Best Endeavours Data Set (NBEDS) is all perinatal deaths in Australia in hospitals, birth centres and the community. The data set includes information on both neonatal deaths and fetal deaths (stillbirths) of at least 20 weeks gestation or 400 grams birthweight.
These data have two dimensions, which are the baby and the mother. All data relevant to the birth are conveyed in relation to one of these.
Collection and usage attributes

In the case of multiple births, data are collected once for each mother and once for each perinatal death.
