The Institute carries out an annual analysis of West Midlands perinatal and infant
mortality. The current period is 1997 - 2006 and the analyses are presented here
for the West Midlands and the Primary Care Trusts within the region. The information
is derived from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) and our Perinatal Death
Notifications (PDN), which are collected regionally. The analyses include yearly
rates and three-year moving averages, and is summarised for stillbirths, early neonatal
death and perinatal and infant mortality.
