Figure 27 shows that, per head of population, women aged 14-19 years in Children’s Centre areas B and D (in the north and east) are significantly more likely to have a child than those in Children’s Centre area E (in the west). Fewer than 5% of women from the City of London deliver at Homerton University Hospital, in comparison to 77% of Hackney’s women, and therefore these figures are only applicable to Hackney.
