Viewed: 342

This datasets consists of de-identified data from the Having a Baby in Queensland Survey, 2012. 

The survey retrospectively assessed women’s outcomes and experiences of care in Queensland during pregnancy, labour, birth, and after birth, for their most recent birth. Women who gave birth in Queensland during a four-month period (October 2011-January 2012) were invited via the Queensland Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages to take part in the 2012 Having a Baby in Queensland Survey.

Invitation packages were sent to 19,958 eligible women at three to four months after birth. The usable response rate for women who had a live singleton or multiple birth was 30.4% (5,840 out of 19,194), following exclusions for returned mailings, stillbirths, or neonatal deaths.
