Topic Understanding Stillbirth

About 2.7 million babies are stillborn every year. While 98% occur in low- and middle-income countries, in high income countries huge disparity exists for disadvantaged women. The primary objective of this study was to examine the association between area-based socio-economic deprivation and stillbirth risk in the routine birth data set between July 1994 and December 2011 in the Queensland, Australia. Secondary objectives were to explore changes over time, and association between deprivation and both cause-specific and gestational age-specific stillbirth.
