Figure 12.1.14: Stillbirths
Rate per 1,000 births (live or still), Middlesex-London, Ontario and Peer Group, 2006 to 2017
The stillbirth rate in Middlesex-London was 15.2 per 1,000 births in 2017, compared to 8.9 in Ontario and 10.4 in the Peer Group. Between 2006 and 2017, stillbirth rates in Middlesex-London were significantly higher than Ontario each year except for 2014 and 2015. The larger fluctuations seen with the Middlesex-London data are expected based on the relatively small numbers of stillbirths.
