There are a couple of limitations in the calendar data and the possibility of capturing all of the information we might like. Two specific issues:
1) If there is a stillbirth and a live birth, only the live birth is captured.
2) If there are twins and both are stillbirths, only one is captured.
These, though are relatively rare events, but it does mean that we have very slight under-counts.
