Stillbirth Rate per 1,000 Live-Births and Stillbirths, On-Reserve, 2019

Notes: According to the Canadian Perinatal Surveillance System, stillbirths include all fetal deaths with a birth weight ≥500 g and/or with a gestational age ≥20 weeks. Typically, the stillbirth rate is calculated by dividing the number of stillbirths by the total number of births (number of live births plus the number of stillbirths) during the same time period. The rate is expressed per 1,000 live births plus stillbirths. The figures are for individuals registered to a Saskatchewan FN band and residing on-reserve. Registered Indian Status was determined by self-declaration in the Vital Statistics System. Population counts were provided by Indigenous Services Canada.

Limitations: As the annual stillbirth rate reflects such small numbers, variation between years can occur. Data cells with values of 5 or fewer have been suppressed and replaced with “*”.
