Website tutorials have now been added to the learning zone to assist users in navigating the main features of the website. The tutorials will provide a brief overview of the content covered by the training workshops and may also serve as a useful refresher. The tutorials are themed around accessing area profiles, searching for and viewing datasets and using interactive content to visualise data.

Births in Northern Ireland 2013

  • In 2013, there were 24,279 births registered in Northern Ireland, almost 1,000 fewer than in 2012.
  • The number of births to teenage mothers reached a record low for Northern Ireland at 937 births.
  • Continuing recent trends towards later childbearing, last year over half (53%) of all babies born were to mothers aged 30 or over.
  • In 2013, 10% of births were to mothers born outside the UK and Ireland, the highest percentage on record. In comparison, in 2005, this figure was 5% and in 1997 it was less than 3%.

Births: 2013 Provisional (administrative geographies), Births to Mothers from Outside Northern Ireland: 2013 Provisional (administrative geographies)and Births (Including Births to Teenage Mothers): 2013 Provisional (NRA) datasets have been added to the website.

The Births and Fertility interactive map has been updated, and a new Births 2013 (Provisional) infographic is available to view.
