A production error has been identified with the conception rates data included in this release. The error affected under 18 and under 16 conception rates for all local authorities between the years 2009 and 2011. This error has been corrected.
ONS apologises for any inconvenience caused.
Teenage conception rates are an important social and health measure for local councils and decision makers. Historically, areas with high teenage conception rates have also had relatively high deprivation measures such as unemployment and child poverty. ONS has used a wide range of official statistics to help people explore the teenage conception rates and measures of deprivation in their area.
The ONS Conceptions-Deprivation Analysis Toolkit is an interactive Excel toolkit allowing people to explore under 18 and under 16 conceptions statistics for 2009 to 2011 and how these link to various measures of deprivation at the national, regional and local level. It helps to assess progress against teenage conception rate targets and produces quick analyses of deprivation to help identify where new interventions might be required.
This toolkit forms part of a wider publication containing a short story taking a closer look at the link between under 18 conceptions and unemployment, and the interactive Excel workbook itself which can be downloaded by clicking on the link to 'Reference tables (1)' above.
