This information is due to be published on 28 February 2008 and will be available to download from the UK Electoral StatisticsDatasets link from: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/STATBASE/Product.asp?vlnk=319
ONS does not currently have population estimates for parliamentary constituencies for the whole of the UK. However mid-2005 estimates for parliamentary constituencies covering England and Wales are due to be published in early 2008, a publication date has not yet been finalised; and mid-2006 estimates for parliamentary constituencies covering Scotland are due to be published on 1 February 2008 and will be available from the General Register Office for Scotland website at: http://www.gro-scotland, gov.uk/statistics/publications-and-data/population-estimates/index.html.

The changes for new parliamentary constituencies effective after the next general election will result in boundary changes for the parliamentary constituencies in England and Wales only.

As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent questions asking how many people died from upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage over the last five years in each region. (178235)
Deaths due to haemorrhage may be certified using a variety of medical terms, depending on the anatomical site and associated health condition. Some of these can be clearly identified as relating to the upper gastrointestinal tract. In other cases, death is certified as being due to a gastrointestinal haemorrhage, but without mention of the exact anatomical site within the gastrointestinal tract. Consequently, the precise number of deaths from upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage is not known.
The table attached provides the number of deaths with an underlying cause of (a) haemorrhage where the site reported was any part of the upper gastrointestinal tract, and (b) gastrointestinal haemorrhage of unspecified site, for each government office region from 2002 to 2006 (the latest year available).
|Table 1. Number of deaths from (a) haemorrhage of the upper gastrointestinal tract, and (b) gastrointestinal haemorrhage of unspecified site. Government Office Regions, 2002-06( 1,2)|
|North East||North West||Yorkshire and the Humber||East Midlands||West Midlands||East of England||London||South East||South West|
|(1) Based on boundaries as of 2008.|
(2) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
(3) Deaths from upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage, site specified as the upper gastrointestinal tract, were defined using the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes I85.0, K22.6, K25.0, K25.2, K25.4, K25.6, K26.0, K26.2, K26.4, K26.6, K27.0, K27.2, K27.4, K27.6, K28.0, K28.2, K28.4, K28.6, K29.0, and K92.0, where any one of these codes was recorded as the underlying cause of death.
(4) Deaths from gastrointestinal haemorrhage, site unspecified, were defined using the ICD-10 code K92.2, where this was recorded as the underlying cause of death.
(5) The total figure is an over-estimate of the number of deaths from upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage, since it includes deaths where the site was unspecified.
