Due to the coronavirus illness (COVID-19) disruption, it would seem that this is now starting to affect the quality and coverage of some of our statistics, such as an increase in non-submissions for some datasets. For the SATOD collection, there is now a noticeable difference in the percentage of mothers who were smokers at the time of delivery from the previous quarter (10.5% in Q4 2019/20 to 9.8% in Q1 2020/21). Therefore, data should be interpreted with care over the COVID-19 period. Please see data DQ table 1 for details of coverage issues given by submitters for this collection.
Key facts are for quarter 1, 2020-21
A decrease from quarter 4 of 2019-20 (10.5%), but above the current national ambition of 6% or less
