Epidemiological characteristics of twinning rates in Taiwan

Acta Geneticae Medicae et Gemellologiae 36(3): 335-342

Epidemiological characteristics of twinning rates in Taiwan

Delivery records of public hospitals and birth certificates of household registration offices were examined to study the epidemiological characteristics of twinning rate from 1955 to 1984 in Taiwan. The MZ twinning rate was consistently higher than the DZ rate during the study period. The DZ rate declined steadily from 2.7 per 1000 in 1955 to 1.3 per 1000 in 1975, and then gradually increased to 3.6 per 1000 in 1984.
