• The rate of perinatal deaths reflects the risk in the population of a baby being stillborn or not surviving the first 28 days of life. Most perinatal deaths are the result of serious congenital anomalies or extreme prematurity. Every perinatal death in the ACT is reviewed to determine the cause.
  • The ACT perinatal death rate fluctuates from year to year due to the small numbers of perinatal deaths each year. Between 2007 and 2016, the ACT perinatal death rate ranged from 7.4 to 12.3 deaths per 1,000 births.
