Results and trends from the women's smoking status at time of delivery (SATOD) data collection in England. The results provide a measure of the prevalence of smoking among pregnant women at Commissioning Region, Region, Sustainability and Transformation Partnership and Clinical Commissioning Group level.
Issue Notification 22/02/19:
NHS Digital were informed by NHS South, Central and West Commissioning Support Unit that they had submitted incorrect data for NHS Eastbourne Hailsham and Seaford and NHS Hastings and Rother. The impact of these corrections would change the proportion of women smoking at the time of delivery from the published figure of 11.0% for 2017/18 to a corrected figure of 11.1% for NHS Eastbourne Hailsham and Seaford, and from 11.1% to 16.5% for NHS Hastings and Rother.
The tables in this report have not been corrected and NHS Digital apologises for any inconvenience caused.
Down from 15.8% in 2006/07, but above the current national ambition of 6% or less.
