United Kingdom: live births 1900-1930

This statistic shows the total number of live births in the United Kingdom (UK) from 1900 to 1930. The largest single year on year increase came from 1919 to 1920, not long after the end of the First World War, when births increased by 300,647. Despite the lower level of population, from 1900 to 1914 the number of live births was consistently above 1 million. A number only surpassed once since in this period, in 1920 at 1.13 million live births. Overall birth rates have been declining by 30 percent during this time.
This trend continued until 1941 which can be viewed in a statistic in relation to the number of UK live births from 1931 to 1960, whereby the number of live births amounted to 695,726. The two years following the end of the Second World War saw a sharp increase in live births, with over a million recorded in 1947. Between 1931 and 1960 the birth rate had increased by 18 percent, and continued to grow until reaching slightly over one million live births again in 1964, this can be viewed in statistic regarding UK live births from 1961 to 1990. In the following years rates had fallen again by 21 percent and according to the birth rates from 1990 to 2015 they stayed at roughly 800,000 live births a year until 2015.
