Summary

On 25 February 2015 the report 'FGM - December 2014, Experimental Statistics, Report.pdf' and the file 'FGM - December 2014, Experimental Statistics, Data Tables.xlsx' were replaced to allow for a revision to a title on table 3.1 and to correct a footnote attached to table 3.1. This change was to help clarify the definition of the table. No changes have been made to any of the figures within the table. HCSIC apologises for any inconvenience caused.      

The Female Genital Mutilation Prevalence Dataset (ISB 1610) is a monthly return of data from acute hospital providers in England. It is an aggregated return of the incidence of FGM including women who have been previously identified and are currently being treated (for FGM related or non FGM related conditions as at the end of the month) and newly identified women within the reporting period. It has been a mandated collection from 1 September 2014.
