The recent trends in multiple births and stillbirth rates in Japan



The recent trends in multiple births and stillbirth rates in Japan



Acta Geneticae Medicae et Gemellologiae 36(3): 325-334



The twinning rate remained nearly constant up to 1968, then decreased in 1974 and gradually increased with the year. The triplet birth rate remained nearly constant up to 1974, then increased up to 1982, where the rate was 1.8 times higher than in 1968, and decreased thereafter. On the other hand, the quadruplet birth rate remained nearly constant up to 1968, was eightfold in 1975, then decreased until 1984 and suddenly increased to 8 per million births in 1985.
