Figure 11 shows that Hackney’s crude fertility rate (CFR)C is higher than the London and England rates and among the highest of its statistical peers, while City’s rate is lower than London’s and England’s.D

Notes

  1. CFR is the number of live births per 1,000 residents of all ages and genders. This is in contrast to the General Fertility Rate (GFR), which is the number of live births per 1,000 women aged 15-44. Hackney’s GFR is 61, which is similar to the London rate of 62 and lower than the England rate of 64, reflecting Hackney’s younger population (in particular, its higher proportion of women aged 15-44). City’s GFR is lower than London’s and England’s at 38.
  2. Hackney’s statistical peers are local authorities with a similar demographic make up to Hackney, used for the purpose of comparisons. For data on children and young people, Hackney’s statistical peers are Brent, Enfield, Greenwich, Hammersmith and Fulham, Haringey, Islington, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, and Waltham Forest. Please note that these differ from the statistical peers used to compare adult or total populations.
