STUDY OBJECTIVE The accuracy of the official statistic on infant deaths in Taiwan has been questioned. This study aimed to survey infant deaths nationwide, to measure associated vital statistics, and compare them with the official statistics to assess accuracy. DESIGN AND PARTICIPANTS A nationwide survey of all gestational outcomes occurring at > or = 20 weeks' gestation over a three day study period (15-17 May 1989) was conducted to collect data from 23 counties and cities nationwide using a… CONTINUE READING

A more detailed examination of data on infant deaths showed that the estimated neonatal death rate of 6.68 per 1000 live births ( 95% confidence intervals : 3.33 , 11.96 per 1000 live births ) was significantly higher than the published official statistic of 1.94 per 1000 live births , while the postneonatal mortality of 3.04 per 1000 live births was comparable to the reported statistic of 3.37 per 1000 live births .
