  1. Maternal mortality in Europe.

    Article - En anglais

    Maternal mortality rates (or ratios) are widely used as one indicator of the quality of medical care.

    There has been concern that conclusions may be drawn from unreliable data.

    A survey of practices in European countries confirms that there are differences in interpretation of definitions and evidence of significant under-reporting in official returns of vital statistics.

    Actual and potential sources of error are identified and a need for greater precision and uniformity of data collection is established.
