Data type

The International Clearinghouse for Birth Defects Surveillance and Research (ICBDSR) is a nongovernmental organization that gathers birth defect surveillance data from national and regional registries and monitoring programs around the world. Forty-four monitoring systems submitted data on 39 congenital anomalies.

Data range from subnational to multicountry, and not every organization's data are included in every table. Additional geographical areas with no listed contributing organizations may be represented in some tables. The report includes information on monitoring systems in varying countries and the number of cases and rates of selected birth defects among live births, stillbirths, and abortions from most participating organizations' data.
