So to know the whether there is any change in maternal deaths pattern of current year from previous years in Rajasthan this study was conducted by analyzing the records of maternal deaths occurring in Mahila Chikitsalay Jaipur from 1st Jan 2005 to 31st December 2009. Maternal deaths pattern of current year (2009) was compared to average of previous 4 years (2005-2008). To analyse these data Chi-squire test, un paired‘t’ test and ANOVA test of significances were used as and when required. It was observed that there was significant decrease in maternal deaths from 2005 to 2009. No seasonal trend was found in maternal deaths in both the groups. Although there was no significant difference in mean age of maternal death but proportion of deaths was more in extremes of age groups in both the groups.
