There are many reports of the birthweights of Aboriginal and Caucasian infants in Australia. A selection of these with about 100 or more infants in the group is given in Table 1. There are several important features in the data in this table. First, the percentage of low birthweight infants (less than 2,500 gm) is consistently higher for Aborigines than for the general Australian population. Second, the percentage of low birthweight infants is greatest among Aborigines in the remote parts of Australia and moves closer to the general Australian level in urban and near-urban Aboriginal communities.
We have searched the clinic records of children born between 1983 and 1988 to find those with suitable maternal data in the earlier years of the data set. We have located suitable records on 119 mothers born between 1951 and 1974. The mothers ranged in age from 14 to 35 years at the time of delivery. Sixty-six mothers had only one delivery in the interval from 1983 to 1988 and 53 had two deliveries. We do not have reliable information on the heights of mothers/ their pre-pregnant weight or their weight gains during pregnancy.
In other more remote groups with lower mean birthweights, an increase of 200 gm would still leave the mean birthweight lower and the prevalence of low birthweight higher than in the general Australian population. It will take a generation before the birthweights and heights of mothers increase sufficiently to make u p the deficit in the birthweights of their infants. EFFECT OF THE MOTHER'S 4 THE BIRTHWEIGHT O N THE BIRTHWEIGHTS OF HER CHILDREN AE Dufdale, J Hendrikz, IA Musgrave and K Streatfield The pattern of birthweights is widely used as an indicator of the overall well-being of populations as it is influenced by the health and nutrition of mothers.
