Projected Frequency of Maternal Characteristics and Obstetric Condition, British Columbia, 2017 and 2035
This report was developed by Perinatal Services BC to aid health planning with regard to maternity and perinatal service requirements in British Columbia in 2017 and 2035. Models based on observed data from British Columbia (2004 to 2009) and simple assumptions suggest that the number of deliveries in the province will continue to increase substantially by 2017 and 2035. The numbers of high risk women with specific conditions will also increase. Health services planning needs to account for these projections, while also entertaining uncertainties inherent in predicting future health care needs.
