Congenital malformations in Victoria 1983-1994

The Victorian Congenital Malformations/Birth Defects Register is a state-wide population based surveillance system established to: 1. provide statistical information to organisations responsible for planning health care facilities for those with congenital malformations, 2. provide background information useful in assessing the factors which cause (or do not cause) birth defects, 3. to provide information for epidemiological research. It was established in 1984 and collects information on all infants born in Victoria since 1982.
