Supplementary notes
* Information from the source: "The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 contained provisions enabling two females in a same sex couple to register a birth from 1 September 2009 onwards. Due to the small numbers, births registered to a same sex couple in a civil partnership (655 in 2013) are included with marital births while births registered to a same sex couple outside a civil partnership (259 in 2013) are included with births outside marriage. The age of the second female parent has been included under the age of the father. Given the relatively small number of births registered to same-sex couples, this has a negligible impact on the statistics."
