[Rapport européen sur la santé périnatale: de meilleures statistiques pour une meilleure santé pour les femmes enceintes et leurs bébés]
This report presents the EURO-PERISTAT perinatal health indicators from 25 participating EU member states and Norway as well as data from three other European projects on perinatal health (SCPE, EUROCAT, and EURONEOSTAT). It is organised into two parts. The first is a narrative section, in which the EURO-PERISTAT indicators are described along with summary tables and graphs. The contributions of the three other projects are included here.
The second section consists of complete data tables on the EURO-PERISTAT indicators. The order of countries in this report follows guidelines established by the European Union. Countries are listed alphabetically following their official names in their own languages.
The EURO-PERISTAT indicators are presented by theme in the narrative section of this report:
- Characteristics of the childbearing population
- Health services
- Maternal health
- Fetal and neonatal health.
- Within each chapter, core indicators are presented before recommended indicators.
- In the data tables (Appendix B) all core indicators are presented first, followed by recommended indicators.

[Rapport européen sur la santé périnatal : La santé et les soins des femmes enceintes et des bébés en Europe en 2010]
The Health and Care of Pregnant Women and Babies in Europe in 2010 released by the Euro-Peristat project is the most comprehensive report on the health and care of pregnant women and babies in Europe. The 250-page report brings together data from 26 European Union member states, plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. The first Euro-Peristat report, with data for 2004, was published in 2008. It found wide differences between the countries of Europe in indicators of perinatal health and care. This second report provides the opportunity to see whether gains in positive health outcomes have been achieved and whether inequalities between the countries of Europe have narrowed.
Euro-Peristat takes a new approach to health reporting. Instead of comparing countries on single indicators like infant mortality using a ‘league table’ approach, our report paints a fuller picture by presenting data about mortality, low birthweight and preterm birth alongside data about health care and maternal characteristics that can affect the outcome of pregnancy. It also illustrates differences in the ways that data are collected, and explains how these can affect comparisons between countries.
