Supplementary notes
* Information from the source: "The mean age of mother at childbirth is standardised. This measure eliminates the impact of any changes in the distribution of the population by age and therefore enables trends over time to be analysed. Standardised means are calculated using rates per 1,000 female population by single year of age of mother. The age definition for the standardised mean age in this data release is women aged 14-45 and therefore figures may not match those previously published".
**The data for 2013 is the first complete year to have birth order recorded for all women rather than only for married women. Consequently the methodology for deriving the mean age of mother is slightly altered for 2013 onwards.
