As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking how many deaths from malnutrition occurred in (a) residences, (b) private care homes, (c) state care homes and (d) hospitals in London in each of the last 10 years. (200367)
The attached table provides the numbers of deaths where malnutrition or effects of hunger were mentioned on the death certificate, for persons dying in (a) private residences, (b) private care homes, (c) state care homes (d) hospitals, or (e) in other places, in the London government office region, for the years 1997 to 2006 (the latest year available).
|Table 1. Deaths from malnutrition and effects of hunger,( 1) by place of death( 2) , London government office region,( 3) 1997-2006( 4)|
|Place of death||1997||1998||1999||2000||2001||2002||2003||2004||2005||2006|
|(1) Cause of death was defined using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes 260-269 (malnutrition) and E904.1 (effects of hunger) for the years 1997 to 2000, and the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes E40-E46 (malnutrition) and T73.0 (effects of hunger) for 2001 onwards. Deaths were included where one of these causes was mentioned anywhere on the death certificate. The introduction of ICD-10 in 2001 means that the numbers of deaths from each cause before 2001 are not completely comparable with later years.|
(2) Deaths in private residences are those occurring at the usual residence of the deceased (according to the informant), where this is not a communal establishment. Private care home includes non-NHS private nursing homes and private residential homes. State care home includes NHS private nursing homes and local authority residential homes. Hospital includes NHS and non-NHS hospitals, or multifunction sites. Deaths occurring in places not defined above, including hospices, are included in the other category.
(3) Based on boundaries as of 2008.
(4) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
Mrs. Maria Miller: To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many multiple births there were in (a) Basingstoke constituency and (b) Hampshire to mothers aged (i) below 18, (ii) between 18 and 24, (iii) between 25 and 29 and (iv) above 30 years, in each year since 1997. 
As the National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your question about how many multiple births there have been in (a) Basingstoke and (b) Hampshire to mothers aged (i) below 18, (ii) between 18 and 24, (iii) between 25 and 29, (iv) above 30 years of age, in each year since 1997.
The latest year for which figures are available is 2006. The attached tables show the number of women experiencing a multiple maternity in Basingstoke and Deane local authority and Hampshire county, in each year from 1997 to 2006. A multiple maternity occurs when a woman gives birth to two or more children at the same time, including both live and stillborn children.
Due to very small numbers at ages below 18 and between 18 and 24 in Basingstoke and Deane, these two age groups have been combined with the age group 25 to 29 to preserve the confidentiality of individuals. For the same reason, ages below 18 and between 18 and 24 have been combined for Hampshire.
|Number of multiple maternities in Basingstoke and Deane local authority and Hampshire county by age group for each year from 1997 to 2006|
|Age of mother|
|Under 30||30 and over||All|
|Age of mother|
