Prevalence of fetal alcohol syndrome in Western Australia

 

Overview

This project aims to identify the prevalence of Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) in Western Australia using data provided by the Western Australian Register of Developmental Anomalies (WARDA).

Birth prevalence per 1,000 births from the years 1980 to 2010 will be calculated to examine trends over time. Prevalence ratios will be used to describe the demographic and clinical characteristics, such as maternal age, socio-economic status, place of residence, and age of the child when FAS was diagnosed.

The project is funded by a National Health and Medical Research Council program grant.
