Section 1.4 includes a brief historical narrative to help put the information in the report into context.

TABLE 6A.4.6 Table 6A.4.6 Unit NSW Vic (d) Qld WA SA Tas ACT (e) NT Aust Incidence of low birthweight among liveborn singleton babies, by State and Territory, by Indigenous status of mother, 20082010 (a), (b), (c) (c) (d) (e) (f) (g) (h) (i) Due to data system reforms the Victorian Perinatal Data Collection for 2009 and 2010 are provisional pending further quality assurance work. Totals for each State and Territory cannot be reconciled by individual jurisdictions as data are collected by place of birth but are published by place of residence. Source : AIHW (unpublished) National Perinatal Data Collection. Birthweight data on babies born to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers residing in the ACT should be viewed with caution as they are based on small numbers of births. Data on Indigenous births relate to babies born to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers only, and excludes babies born to non-Indigenous mothers and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander fathers. Therefore, the information is not based on the total count of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander babies. Includes births to mothers whose Indigenous status was not stated. Rate ratio is the proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander babies with low birthweight divided by the proportion of non-Indigenous babies with low birthweight. Rate difference is the proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander babies with low birthweight less the proportion of non-Indigenous babies with low birthweight. Nil or rounded to zero.
