For children, registrations used to lapse at the end of the calendar year after attendance at the dentist; since September 1996 the registration period is 15 months. These changes began to affect registration numbers in December 1997.

Yvette Cooper: Genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics provide the best available data on sexually transmitted infections and reported cases of uncomplicated genital chlamydial infection from 1990 are shown in the table. There are no data for chlamydial infection before 1990 as cases were included in the category "non specific urethritis".
|Year||Male cases||Female cases|
(20) These data are collected from GUM clinics and do not include cases diagnosed in other health care settings. These are aggregate not patient based data and so they are the number of reported cases not the actual numbers of males and females who have been diagnosed with uncomplicated genital chlamydial infection.
