  • Proposed Changes to ONS Birth Statistics

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is running a consultation on changes that we are planning to make to the way that birth statistics are published from the 2017 data year onwards.

    We plan to make four explorable datasets available for live births; the specification for these and consequential proposed changes to our annual publication tables are detailed in the consultation.

    We would appreciate and welcome your feedback on these proposals and will take account of all feedback received before making any changes.
