National Child Mortality Database (NCMD) – Second Annual Report (England only)

Reports | Published: 10 Jun 2021

The NCMD collects data on the deaths of all live-born children in England who die before their 18th birthday. The purpose of collating information nationally is to ensure that deaths are learned from, that learning is widely shared and that actions are taken, locally and nationally, to reduce the number of children who die.

This second annual report includes data from the first year of the child death review national data collection.

The report provides descriptive analysis of the characteristics of the children who have died from 01 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 in England. In addition, it analyses the information from the completed child death reviews during the same period, which also includes some deaths that occurred before 01 April 2019.
