The scope of the Perinatal National Best Endeavours Data Set (NBEDS) is all births in Australia in hospitals, birth centres and the community. The data set includes information on all births, both live births and stillbirths, of at least 20 weeks gestation or 400 grams birth weight.
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.
