OBJECTIVES: To clarify the trend of the incidence of SIDS in the last 20 years in Japan to provide the basis for health administration training. METHOD: We have studied the SIDS incidence rate, the infant mortality rate, the neonatal mortality rate and perinatal deaths of the last 20 years in Japan and calculated the rate at which SIDS has contributed to infant mortality. RESULT: We found that the 2001 SIDS incidence rate in Japan was 0.24 per 1000 births, which had taken a downturn since its upturn of around 1995. The rate of SIDS incidence as a part of the infant mortality rate in 2001 in Japan was 7.7%, which had taken a downturn since its upturn of around 1997. CONCLUSION: The SIDS incidence rate in Japan in recent years is on the decline.
