It has been suggested that customized birthweight prediction, taking ethnicity, gestational age, parity, age, sex of child, maternal height and weight into consideration would predict the risk of perinatal death better than birth weights that are only standardized for gestational age and sex.
However, this has never been tested. We aim to estimate the association between perinatal death and alternative measures (fully customized versus non-customized) of standardized birthweight using large sample sets from Norway, Wales, England, Denmark and Finland.
