Introduction

A start page for exploring reports that relate to embryological development. Many of these contain statistical analysis of country by country or world data by various government and non-government bodies.


Reports - Give a spoken or written account of something that one has observed, heard, done, or investigated.

Some Recent Findings

Australia

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare

(AIHW)

  • Australia’s mothers and babies 2007[1] | 2008[2]
  • Mandatory folic acid and iodine fortification in Australia and New Zealand: baseline report for monitoring[3] 11 May 2011
    • The Australia and New Zealand Food Regulation Ministerial Council (the Ministerial Council) requested that Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) consider mandatory folic acid fortification to help reduce the incidence of neural tube defects (NTDs) (serious birth defects), and mandatory iodine fortification to tackle the re-emergence of iodine deficiency in the population.
    • In response, FSANZ developed two mandatory standards, effective from October 2009, which require the addition of folic acid to bread- making flour in Australia, and iodine (via iodised salt) to bread in Australia and New Zealand.
    • This report presents baseline data for each component of the monitoring framework, and makes observations for future monitoring.
  • Nursing and midwifery labour force 2008[4] 13 Oct 2010
    • In 2008 the total number of registered and enrolled nurses estimated by the Nursing and Midwifery Labour Force Survey was 312,736, an increase of 10.6% since 2004.
    • The nursing workforce continued to age between 1997 and 2008; the proportion of nurses aged 50 years or over increased from 18.9% to 34.4%.
    • The number of full time equivalent nurses per 100,000 population increased by 15.2% between 2004 and 2008, and the profession continued to be predominantly female, with females comprising 91% of employed nurses in 2008.
  • Diabetes in pregnancy: its impact on Australian women and their babies.[5]
    • Diabetes is known to adversely affect women and their babies during pregnancy, labour and delivery.
    • These adverse effects differ by type of diabetes and between population groups.
    • This report is the first to explore these differences among Australian mothers and their babies at a national level, showing that: diabetes affects about 1 in 20 pregnancies; mothers with pre-existing Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, and their babies, are at highest risk of adverse effects; mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus, and their babies, are also at increased risk; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mothers and their babies are more likely to experience adverse effects than non-Indigenous mothers and their babies.
  • Diabetes prevalence in Australia: detailed estimates.[6] (based on self-reports to the Australian Bureau of Statistics' 2007-08) 30 Jun 2011
    • In 2007–08, an estimated 898,800 Australians had been diagnosed with diabetes (excluding gestational diabetes) at some time in their lives.
    • 87,100 had been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.
    • 787,500 had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
    • 56% of those diagnosed with diabetes were male and 44% were female.
    • About 96% of people with diabetes were 35 years old or more, and 43% were aged 65 years or more.
    • The proportion of people with diabetes was similar in all states and territories, after accounting for differences in age.
    • After accounting for differences in age, the proportion of people with diabetes was similar in major cities, regional areas and remote areas.

  • Nutrient Reference Values for Australia and New Zealand Including Recommended Dietary Intakes.[7] 2006 PDF
    • The Nutrient Reference Values outline the levels of intake of essential nutrients considered to be adequate to meet the known nutritional needs of practically all healthy people for prevention of deficiency states. The document can be used by health professionals to assess the likelihood of inadequate intake in individuals or groups of people.

Australian Government

Research Involving Embryos and Prohibition of Human Cloning Bill 2002

The Research Involving Human Embryos Act 2002 and the Prohibition of Human Cloning Act 2002 were passed by Parliament in December 2002. These Acts establish a strong regulatory framework to prohibit certain unacceptable practices including human cloning, and to regulate uses of excess human embryos created though assisted reproductive technology (ART).

CDC/National Center for Health Statistics

  • CDC Report 2005 Trends in Spina Bifida and Anencephalus in the United States[8] In the U.S.A. the Food and Drug Administration in 1996 authorized that all enriched cereal grain products be fortified with folic acid, with optional fortification beginning in March 1996 and mandatory fortification in January 1998. The data in the report shows the subsequent changes in anencephaly and spina bifida rate over that period.
  • Recent Trends in Births and Fertility Rates Through 2010[9] online report | PDF
    • The broad-based decline in births and fertility rates from 2007 through 2009 is now well-documented. An earlier NCHS Health E-Stat showed the overall birth count and fertility rate continuing to decline through the first 6 months of 2010. This report updates and extends the trend through December 2010.
    • The provisional count of births in the United States for 2010 (12-month period ending December 2010) was 4,007,000. This count was 3 percent less than the number of births in 2009 (4,131,019) and 7 percent less than the all-time high of 4,316,233 births in 2007.
    • The provisional fertility rate for 2010 was 64.7 births per 1,000 women aged 15–44. This was 3 percent less than the 2009 preliminary rate of 66.7 and 7 percent less than the 17-year high of 69.5 in 2007
