Births

This section contains links to annual births statistics from 1887 onwards, provisional monthly totals for births registered and births occurring, and Baby Names statistics from 1997 onwards for Northern Ireland.

The tables that accompany the Annual Report of the Registrar General have been reviewed and consolidated with the formerly, separately published annual summary tables for each topic area to produce a single, streamlined set of annual tables. Details of the changes made and where to find specific information in the newly revised tables are available in the RG tables lookup document.

Detailed finalised statistics on birth registrations in Northern Ireland are available from the Births section of the Registrar General Annual Report.

Further provisional birth statistics for more recent years are available from the Registrar General Quarterly Tables.

Detailed information on the quality of the data the birth statistics are based is available from the Background Quality Report (BQR).
