Abstract
The decline in perinatal mortality in a Swedish county during a six year period is examined and analyzed by use of perinatal audit. The decline coincided with an increased rate of in utero transfers of infants, particularly those with low birth weights, to the specialized county hospital. The perinatal audit revealed that the proportion of deaths which were classified as potentially avoidable, decreased significantly over the study period.
