Figure 6: Early and late neonatal mortality rate by maternal region of residence with associated 95% confidence intervals for total neonatal mortality rate, 2004. Note: The West Midlands Perinatal Institute has been investigating the high early neonatal mortality rates in their region. There appears to be a high proportion of recorded deaths at very early gestations (e.g. <24 weeks and even <22 weeks).
