Statistics on live and still births occurring annually in England and Wales. Statistics for births in previous years are included to show trends in fertility. It also covers birth counts and birth rates tabulated by, among other attributes, parents' age, occurrence within or outside marriage, multiple births, mother's area of residence and country of birth, place of confinement, and father's social class (defined by occupation).
This publication has been discontinued as a result of the review of birth statistics. The outcome of the review includes a lookup table to show how the FM1 tables relate to the new birth tables. The last volume to be published was Birth Statistics 2008 (Series FM1 No. 37).
