Abstract

The Italian distribution of birth weight has been computed using information routinely collected by the Italian Central Institute of Statistics on about 1,150,000 births in the period 1984-1985. Individual records include data on birth weight for single/multiple births for 28th-42nd gestational weeks and for delivery modalities for 23rd-27th gestational weeks, according to sex. This analysis shows, from a large national data-set, distribution of weight at birth from a Southern European population, providing to obstetrics and perinatologists curves of fetal growth more directly representative of the population under their care.
