|Comments:||This indicator is a proxy. The numerator for the proxy indicator is the number of women who gave birth and reported smoking at any time in pregnancy. The denominator is the total number of women who gave birth. Records with data that are missing, not stated or not interpretable have been included in the denominator.
The aspirational indicator has two parts:
Data elements are from the Perinatal national minimum data set (NMDS) or have been provided as voluntary non-standardised items by the states and territories.
Standardised data collection for smoking in pregnancy commenced for births from July 2010. This will enable reporting against parts (a) among all women who gave birth the proportion who reported smoking tobacco in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy and (b) among all women who gave birth the proportion who reported smoking after 20 weeks of pregnancy, of the indicator in future, but data are not available to report on this indicator for 2004–09.
A birth is defined as the event in which a baby comes out of the uterus after a pregnancy of at least 20 weeks gestation or weighing 400 grams or more.
Smoking refers to the use of cigarettes or inhaled tobacco.
National Perinatal Data Collection (NPDC) data on smoking status and/or smoking quantity (number of cigarettes smoked) have been collected from NSW, Qld, SA and ACT since 2001, and progressively from all other jurisdictions. These data have been used to produce this proxy indicator.
