In the United States, the rate of stillbirths was reported as 6.41 per 1000 deliveries (stillbirths and livebirths
) in 2004.
In USA it has been reported constant as 32/1000 births,1 whereas the incidence of high order multiples is 147/100000 livebirths
. In the United Kingdom, twin pregnancy rates are 14.7/1000 maternities.

Analysis of the infant mortality rate in no Brazil from 2006 to 2016 showed a reduction from 12.6 per 1000 livebirths
in 2006 to 10.3 per 1000 livebirths
in 2016, i.e., a national percentage variation of -25.2%.
In the large study of European Surveillance of Congenital Anomalies (2003-2007), the prevalence of congenital abnormalities was estimated to be 2.39 percent of all livebirths
, fetal deaths, and terminated pregnancies (Dolk, Loane, and Game 2010).
Its prevalence is around one in every 1,000 livebirths

with complete investigation," The Lancet, vol.
The reported prevalence is approximately 4 in 10,000 livebirths
and accounts for 4 to 6% of all congenital heart defects .
(2005) also showed an association between age and stillbirth (OR 2); however, the difference, between the baseline stillbirth rates of white women (3 stillbirths/1000 livebirths
) and black women (6.5 stillbirths/1000 livebirths
) in this study, demonstrates that there are factors other than age that influence how often there is a stillbirth outcome.
