The latest year for which figures are available is 2006. The table below shows the number of deaths of teenagers where an alcohol-related cause was the underlying cause of death or was mentioned as a contributory factor on the death certificate. Figures are provided from 2001 to 2006.
|Number of deaths of those aged 13 to 19 where an alcohol-related cause( 1) was the underlying cause of death or was mentioned as a contributory factor on the death certificate the death certificate,( 2) England and Wales, 2001-06( 3)|
|Underlying cause of death||Mentioned as contributory factor|
|(1 )Selected using the National Statistics definition of alcohol-related deaths. The International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes for the definition are listed as follows:|
F10Mental and behavioural disorders due to use of alcohol
G31.2Degeneration of nervous system due to alcohol
K70Alcoholic liver disease
K73Chronic hepatitis, not elsewhere classified
K74Fibrosis and cirrhosis of liver (excluding K74.3-K74.5billiary cirrhosis)
K86.0Alcohol induced pancreatitis
X45Accidental poisoning by and exposure to alcohol
X65Intentional self-poisoning by and exposure to alcohol
Y15Poisoning by and exposure to alcohol, undetermined intent
(2) The number of deathswhere an alcohol-related cause was mentioned as a contributory factor also includes those deaths where the cause was selected as the underlying cause of death.
(3) Data are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your question on the number of births there has been each month since January 2001. (150955)
The latest available figures on live births by month are for 2005. The table below shows the figures requested for the years 2001 to 2005 and covers live births registered in England and Wales.

Miss McIntosh: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families on funding for children's centres from April 2008. 
Andy Burnham: Treasury Ministers have discussions on a wide range of issues as part of the process of policy development and delivery. As was the case with previous Administrations, it is not the Government's practice to provide details of these discussions.
Mr. Lansley: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the death rate from (a) stroke, (b) heart disease, stroke and related illnesses and (c) all cancers was among (i) people aged 65 years and under, (ii) people aged 75 years and under and (iii) all people, in each year since 1977. 
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question asking what the death rate from (a) stroke, (b) heart disease, stroke and related illnesses and (c) all cancers was among (i) people aged 65 years and under, (ii) people aged 75 years and under and (iii) all people, in each year since 1977. I am replying in her absence. (150400)
The latest year for which figures are available is 2005. The table below shows age-standardised mortality rates from 1977 to 2005 for (a) stroke, (b) all circulatory diseases, and (c) cancer, for people aged under 65, under 75, and all ages.
|Age-standardised mortality rates( 1) by age group, for selected causes of death( 2) , England and Wales, 1977-2005( 3)|
|Stroke||All circulatory diseases||Cancer|
|Under 65||Under 75||All ages||Under 65||Under 75||All ages||Under 65||Under 75||All ages|
|(1) Rate per million population, age-standardised to the European Standard Population.|
(2) Selected using International Classification of Diseases, Eighth Revision (ICD-8) codes for the years 1977 to 1978, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes for the years 1979 to 2000, and Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes for the years 2001 to 2005. The codes selected are listed as follows:
StrokeICD-8 430-438; ICD-9 430-438; ICD-10 I60-I69
All circulatory diseasesICD-8 390-444.1, 444.4-458.9, 782; ICD-9 390-459; ICD-10 I00-I99
Cancer (all malignant neoplasms)ICD-8 140-207; ICD-9 140-208; ICD-10 C00-C97
Between 1984 and 1992, a different interpretation of the World Health Organization selection Rule 3 was used to select the underlying cause of death in England and Wales, to that used internationally. This change means that comparisons between this period, and years before and after, should be interpreted with caution. The impact of the change on mortality statistics was analysed and reported in annual mortality publications for 1984 and 1993-94 (notes 1 and 2) . The introduction of ICD-10 for coding cause of death in 2001 also means that figures are not comparable with data for years before this date. Comparisons between the data before and after 2001 should therefore also be interpreted with caution. Articles specifically examining the effects of the change in classification for circulatory disease and cancer trends were published in Health Statistics Quarterly 22 and Health Statistics Quarterly 23 (notes 3 and 4). More information about these changes, as well as the results of the study, can be found on the National Statistics website at www.statistics.gov.uk/icd10mortality.
