Continuing the trend over recent years, the largest numbers of confinements in 1998 were among mothers resident in the South Western Sydney (12,050, 14.2 per cent) and Western Sydney Areas (10,541, 12.4 per cent). These two Health Areas contributed over one quarter of the State’s births. Seventy-nine per cent of confinements were to mothers resident in the metropolitan Areas (including the Central Coast, Hunter and Illawarra Areas), and 20.6 per cent were to mothers resident in rural Areas.
