Information for registry areas could be supplied only at disproportionate cost. Information for the mother's usual local authority of residence has been placed in the Library. Annual tables are available for 1980 and for 1982 to 1990, inclusive. Industrial action by registrars means that such a detailed analysis is impractical for 1981.
