Return to 'Birth characteristics'
Provides files to download data as it existed for this dataset on previous dates.
Statistics are most often revised for 1 of 2 reasons:
- For certain statistics initial estimates are released with the expectation that these may be revised and updated as further data becomes available.
- Revisions may also be made when methods or systems are changed.
These types of planned revisions should not be confused with errors in released statistics, which are genuine mistakes. Such mistakes occur rarely and, when they do happen, corrections are made in a timely manner, announced and clearly explained to users in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (Principle 2, Practice 7).

A small error occurred in table 7 of Birth characteristics 2015 due to a processing error; the total number of live births and stillbirths, and live births to White British and the not stated ethnic groups were incorrect. We have corrected this error. You can see all previous versions of this data on the previous versions page. We apologise for any inconvenience.
