This paper describes a linked total population database established in Western Australia for monitoring and evaluating maternal and child health and for conducting epidemiological studies. Good vital statistics data including all Western Australian hospitalisations and excellent birth defects and cerebral palsy registers have ensured that complete data are available. Examples of studies which have been conducted using the database are given.
