Northamptonshire Analysis
The authority on Northamptonshire statistics


  • 19 March 2019
    The Northamptonshire Analysis Website is now CLOSED.

    The website may flicker in the ether for a short time after the end of March 2019, but please remember that the data and links have not been updated since January (2019) so it will become increasingly out of date as time passes.

    If you are interested in a particular dataset and want to watch out for future national releases, remember that a link to the relevant national release webpage for each dataset can be found within the indicator metadata (click on the blue circle with the white i below the indicator name within the data tables and then look under the 'Publisher' block). The metadata also provides details about the time of year the national data releases generally occur.

    Many thanks to everyone who has supported the website over the last six years.

    Security Certificate and Website Closure
    The Northamptonshire Analysis website will be closing at the end of March 2019 as part of the 2019-20 NCC financial plans. No further data updates and news-items will be added to this site as we prepare to move some of the data to the county council website. Further information will be available towards the end of March.

    As you will have noticed if you are reading this news-item, the security certificate for Northamptonshire Analysis is no longer in place. The website will be running without this certificate until its closure date.

    Live Births by Characteristics
    The Office for National Statistics released further birth characteristics data for 2017 today. This information can be found within the dataview Live Births : Totals, Gender, Low Birth Weight, Marital Status, Age of Mother. There is a separate dataview showing Live Births by Mother's Country of Birth which was updated previously.

    Just a couple of snippets from this new data :
    ....   The % of births in Northamptonshire below 2.5kg in weight rose to 7.4% in 2017, the highest rate of the last eight years. This is driven by rates of over 8% in Corby, East Northamptonshire and Kettering. The England average is 7.0% and has remained at this level for seven years.
    ....   The proportion of sole registrations across the county at 4.7 for 2017 is lower than the England average (5.2%) and remains below 5% for the second year running. Amongst the boroughs and districts the highest sole registration rates (as opposed to registering with a partner) are found in Wellingborough (5.9%) and Northampton (5.8%).
    ....   Northamptonshire's General Fertility Rate (the number of live births per 1000 women aged 15-44) at 66.1 births is above the England average of 61.2. The rate ranges from 58.7 in South Northamptonshire to 70.3 in Corby.

    Key Stage 2 Achievement
    Key Stage 2 Achievement by Characteristic of Pupil for 2017-18 has been uploaded to Northamptonshire Analysis, along with the achievement gap information between the paired characteristics (eg male : female). This is available for all levels of geography from MSOA upwards including the analytical geotypes (deprived : not deprived split; urban : rural split).   LSOA level data is available for those who have registered for a login and have an NCC email address.

    NB. The data for County level and smaller geographies covers pupils who both go to school and live in the county.

    The proportion of Northamptonshire's KS2 pupils achieving the expected standard or above in reading, writing and mathematics falls behind the national level overall (60% v. 65%) and in each of the main pupil characteristics indicators.

    Northamptonshire pupils who have a first language which is not English (1st Language Other) have results which are the furthest behind the equivalent England average (55.6% achievement against 63.0% nationally). However, countywide the % achievement in this language category has increased by 8.3%-points over the last year and has narrowed the gap with those pupils who have English as a first language.   Amongst the county's boroughs and districts the proportion of 1st Language Other pupils achieving the expected standard or above in RW&M, range from 72.4% in South Northamptonshire to 48.5% in Corby, although amongst those areas of Corby which fall amongst the 20% most deprived nationally, the proportion achieving expected or above falls to 37.8%.

    Data for the following characteristics are also available : Gender, Disadvantage, Special Educational Needs, Ethnicity and Eligibility for Free School Meals.

    Also uploaded are the KS2 School Standards Indicators where Northamptonshire shows an improvement in the number of schools not meeting the floor standard or deemed to be coasting.

    Life Expectancy
    The latest life expectancy dataset covering 2015-2017 released by the Office for National Statistics on Wednesday has now been uploaded to Northamptonshire Analysis. Please see the dataview called Life Expectancy (including Healthy & Disability-Free Life Expectancy) within the Population and Census theme.

    Male Life Expectancy at Birth for Northamptonshire has increased by 0.1 of a year in 2015-17 and now stands at 79.5 years.   After years of uninterrupted increases, male life expectancy in the county has flattened over the last three time periods. The national timeseries shows a similar picture, although nationally men live a smidge longer at 79.6 years (2015-17).   Amongst the county's boroughs and district the latest figures range from 81.4 years in Daventry to 76.8 years in Corby.    This figure ranks Corby 333 of 346 borough/district/unitary (BDU) authorities (14th lowest) across England and Wales.

    Despite having a slightly lower Life Expectancy at Birth than the national average, Northamptonshire's males on average spend a higher proportion of their lives in good health (82.0%) than men across England a whole (79.7%).

    Female Life Expectancy at Birth in Northamptonshire for 2015-17 is 82.8 years, a decrease for the second time period running.   The England average has remained static at 83.1 years for the last three time periods.   Amongst the county's boroughs and districts the figure ranges from 84.9 years in South Northamptonshire (static) to 80.5 years in Corby (a decrease). This figure ranks Corby 340 out of 346 BDU authorities across England and Wales (7th lowest) behind Manchester, Blackpool, Middlesbrough, Kingston-Upon-Hull, Blackburn-with-Darwen and Liverpool.

    Women in Northamptonshire have a healthy life expectancy at birth of 62.7 years (less than for males in the county), which equates to 75.8% of their lives (a decreasing proportion).   Unlike for males in the county this is a lower proportion than the national average (76.7%).

    Also available in the dataview are life expectancy at age 65 and disability free life expectancy.
