Summary

This report presents the latest results and trends from the women's smoking status at time of delivery (SATOD) data collection in England.  It includes new figures for the first and second quarter of 2013/14.

The results provide a measure of the prevalence of smoking among pregnant women at Commissioning Region, Area Team and Clinical Commissioning Group level.  This supplements the national information available from the quinquennial Infant Feeding Survey (IFS).

Smoking remains one of the few modifiable risk factors in pregnancy.  It can cause a range of serious health problems, including lower birth weight, pre-term birth, placental complications and perinatal mortality.

Reports in the series prior to 2011/12 quarter 3 are available from the Department of Health website (see below).
