Summary

This report presents statistics on women’s smoking status at time of delivery, at Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Clinical Commissioning Region, Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), and national levels. This release includes data for quarter 4 of 2020-21 alongside finalised data for the 2020-21 financial year.

COVID-19 and the production of statistics. Due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) disruption, the quality and coverage of some of our statistics has been affected, for example by an increase in non-submissions for some datasets. For the SATOD collection, there is a noticeable difference in the percentage of women who were smokers at the time of delivery in 2020/21 from the previous year (from 10.4% to 9.5%). Therefore, data should be interpreted with care over the COVID-19 period. Please see DQ table 1 for details of coverage issues given by submitters for this collection.
