Scope:Help on this term

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 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

Statistical unit:Help on this term

As there are two dimensions to the data, there are two statistical units:
1. Mother (Female)
2. Baby (Product of birth).

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

Guide for use:Help on this term

This NBEDS is intended as an interim standard only. If jurisdictions are able to report the data elements then they should do so. It is expected that the data elements will be included as mandatory data elements in future Perinatal national minimum data sets (NMDS).

National reporting arrangements:

State and territory health authorities provide the data to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare for national collation, on an annual basis.
