  1. SLBR stands for stillbirth rates defined with respect for live births. It is derived by using the number stillborn from Blencowe et al. [5] and number of live births as calculated by using the neonatal mortality number and rate from World Development Indicators. SB, NM and NMR stand for the number stillborn, neonatal mortality, and its rate, respectively. The abbreviations for the regions and income-groups are DR developed region, SA Southern Asia, CCA Caucasus and Central Asia, EA Eastern Asia, LA Latin America & Caribbean, NAME North Africa and Middle East, SEA South-eastern Asia, SSA Sub-Saharan Africa, H & Up-Mid-Y high and upper middle income, Low-Mid & L-Y lower middle and low income. Rate/ratio are for the whole region or income-group. SD and mean are of individual countries’ rates/ratios in the region or income-group given in Additional file 2. SD/mean is expressed as a % (with % sign not written)
