Vital Statistics

The Office for National Statistics publishes vital statistics which includes data on births, deaths and fertility trends on an annual basis at local authority level.

The Observatory has produced a briefing note on the latest 2011 Vital Statistics for Warwickshire:

Briefing Note – Vital Statistics

In Warwickshire in 2011, there were 6,273 live births, 3,198 boys (51%) and 3,075 girls (49%).  Over a quarter of the County’s live births (26%) were in Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough while North Warwickshire accounted for the lowest volume of live births with just over 10% (or 651 live births) in the County.

In 2011 the total fertility rate (TFR) in Warwickshire was 1.89 children per woman. This differs quite considerably when looking at the District and Borough rates.

The TFR for all Districts and Boroughs in the County have risen over the ten year period from 2001 to 2011 mirroring the national trend.

The ONS have also published an interactive mapping tool which enables trends in fertility to be analysed at a local authority level:
