Deaths related to cigarette smoking cannot be directly estimated, as smoking status is not included on the death certificate. However, research published by the then Health Development Agency in 2004 suggested that, in the period 1998-2002, some 17 per cent. of all deaths in England were attributable to smoking.(1)

John Battle: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what his latest estimate is of the percentage of the population in (a) Leeds West constituency and (b) Leeds Metropolitan District which is economically inactive. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking what the latest estimate is of the percentage of the population in (a) Leeds West constituency and (b) Leeds Metropolitan District which is economically inactive. 
The Office for National Statistics compiles estimates of inactivity for local areas from the Annual Population Survey (APS) following International Labour Organisation definitions.
Table 1 contains estimates of the percentage of persons aged 16 or more who were resident in the Leeds West constituency and the Leeds Metropolitan District and economically inactive for the 12 month period ending December 2007 from the APS. These differ from the published estimates which are for persons of working age (Males age 16-64, females age 16-59), which have also been included in the table.
As this estimate is for a subset of the population in a small geographical area, it is based on a very small sample size, and is therefore subject to a large margin of uncertainty.
