Vital Events Reference Tables 2011

Section 3: Births

Information about the basis of these statistics is available from the Vital Events – General Information and the Births – Background Information pages of this website.

Note: the birth rates and fertility rates given in the tables in this section have been superseded. They were produced using the original mid-year population estimates for 2002 onwards, which have been superseded by 'rebased' population estimates which take account of the results of the 2011 Census. Revised versions of most of these figures (which were produced using the 'rebased' population estimates) can be obtained from:

More information about the rebasing of the mid-year estimates, and the consequential temporary break in some of the Vital Events statistics series (such as birth rates and death rates) is available from the Births and Deaths Rates: breaks in series circa 2011 section of this website.
