Data items to be collected

CCGs must submit the following data items for each quarter in the financial year of the birth registration:

  1. Number of maternities
  2. Number of women known to be smokers at the time of delivery
  3. Number of women known to be non-smokers at the time of delivery 
  4. Number of women whose smoking status was not known at the time of delivery.

These are defined as:

  • The number of maternities is defined as the number of pregnant women who give birth (during the quarter) to one or more live or stillborn babies of at least 24 weeks gestation, where the baby is delivered by either a midwife or doctor at home or in an NHS hospital (including GP units). This count should be the number of pregnant women, not the number of babies (deliveries), i.e. twins are counted as one maternity. It does not include maternities that occur in psychiatric hospitals or private beds /hospitals.
  • Women known to be smokers at the time of delivery are defined as pregnant women who self-reported that they were smokers. This includes any cigarettes or tobacco at all, but excludes non-combustible nicotine products, such as e-cigarettes or other nicotine containing products. If a woman intends to give up smoking after the delivery, but was a smoker up until the delivery date they are included in this count.
  • Women known to be non-smokers at the time of delivery are defined as pregnant women who self-reported that they were non-smokers (no cigarettes or tobacco at all).  This count does not include women whose smoking status is not known (which is collected separately), or those who intend to give up smoking after delivery.
  • Women whose smoking status was not known at the time of delivery are defined as those whose smoking status was not determined for whatever reason.

Commissioner based returns

This is a CCG return. CCGs should submit all maternities where the baby is delivered by either a midwife or doctor at home or in an NHS hospital (including GP units) commissioned by that CCG. The CCG is required to submit data for all maternities.

Data revisions

If you want to re-submit any of the earlier quarter's data contact the data collections team. During the quarter 4 submission period, there will be an opportunity to re-submit data for quarters 1, 2 and 3 can only be done in quarter 4.   If you wish to make revisions please speak to the data collections team first so they can re-open the quarter(s) for revision.

Statistics on Women's Smoking Status at Time of Delivery, England - Quarter 4, 2013-14

18/09/2014: Figures for NHS Wiltshire were incorrectly provided for Q4 2013/14 by the CCG. Figures have not been revised as the national impact of the changes is very limited. Specifically 268 maternities had been incorrectly submitted as smoking at the time of delivery instead of not smoking. The following text highlights the changes needed for NHS Wiltshire and Bath, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire Area Team. These are also footnoted within the relevant tables. The changes needed for England and the South of England are negligible. Table 5: Number of women smoking at time of delivery for NHS Wiltshire CCG in Q4 2013/14 should be 139. The corresponding percentage of women smoking at time of delivery should be 12.3%. Number not smoking at time of delivery should be 992 and the percentage should be 87.6%.
