TLDR
The aim of this study was to analyse existing knowledge on the relationship between SES and the risk of CP to determine whether SES confers additional risk of cerebral palsy.

The Prevalence of Cerebral Palsy

TLDR
A survey is given of the occurrence of cerebral palsy in a 10‐year group of a population of 265,000 individuals in Sweden, finding that in two thirds of the cases prematurity, illness of the mother during pregnancy or an abnormal obstetrical history was shown to have been present.

TLDR

Cerebral palsy in southern Sweden I. Prevalence and clinical features

TLDR
The prevalence, clinical features and gross motor function of children with cerebral palsy in southern Sweden were investigated and the distribution according to gestational age, birthweight and subdiagnoses was similar to that in earlier Swedish studies, except for a higher rate of dyskinetic syndromes in this study.

The changing panorama of cerebral palsy in Sweden. IX. Prevalence and origin in the birth‐year period 1995–1998

TLDR
For the first time, hemiplegia was now most common, due to the decline in preterm diplegia, and there was a further increase in full‐term dyskinetic cerebral palsy.

Prevalence of cerebral palsy in The Netherlands (1977–1988)

TLDR
The population prevalence of CP in the Netherlands over the birth year period 1977–1988 was calculated as 1.51 per 1000 inhabitants (average over the 12 birth years) and the calculated CP prevalence rose significantly over time: from 0.77 (1977–1979) to 2.44 (1986–1988).
