Childbearing of UK and non-UK born women living in the UK, 2011 Census data, 04/02/14 [E/NI/S/W]

The Office for National Statistics has published this report on fertility patterns in the UK for UK born and non-UK born mothers shows that British women are having significantly more children than a decade ago, with birth rates for mothers in England and Wales up by 18 per cent.

Improvements in fertility treatment allowing people to start families later and a growing population of second-generation migrants are among possible explanations for the rise.
