Break in series: late reports
Until 2010, reports on events taking place in a certain year received by Statistics Netherlands after 15 February in the following year were disregarded. These are so-called late reports.
As a result of an improvement in the production process, from 2010 these late reports are included in the year of publication (i.e. not in the year the event took place, but in the year the results are published).
Infant mortality by sex
Infant mortality:
The number of live born children who died before their first birthday (age on last birthday).

Live born child:
A baby showing some sign of life after birth, regardless of the duration of pregnancy.
