    Trends in the health of mothers and babies: Northern Territory 1986-2020
    Taken from Executive Summary: This report provides detailed descriptive information on the changes in health outcomes and risk factors of NT resident mothers and babies. The analysis is inclusive of all babies with gestational age of at least 20 weeks or, if gestation is unknown, birthweight is at least 400 grams, for the NT population. The analysis presents results for the NT overall and by Aboriginal status, across a 35-year period from 1986 to 2020. We examine changes within population groups, with separate graphs and statistics reported for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal mothers and babies. This approach is useful to highlight successful progress within populations and is in line with strength-based reporting. This approach also highlights areas that need greater attention and focus among key target groups. Further, we compare the two populations to demonstrate areas where significant inequalities in outcomes may exist and persist through time. The comparison between groups is not intended to highlight deficits in a population, but is important for informing service delivery and in working towards priorities for the provision of culturally safe care.
