Dattani, N., Datta-Nemdharry, P. & Macfarlane, A. J. (2012). Linking maternity data for England 2007: methods and data quality. Health Statistics Quarterly, 53(53), pp. 4-21.


Maternity Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data for 2007 were linked to birth registration and NHS Numbers for Babies (NN4B) data to bring together some key demographic and clinical data items not otherwise available at a national level. This extended the time period 2005-06, for which data had previously been linked and reported.
