Kind of a random question here, but reading some threads from last year I keep reading it was a low birth year last year. Does anyone know what this year? It seems to me there are more girls (girls girls everywhere it seems) :?
DD2 whose taking test has 11 girls and only 2 boys from her class taking the test!

From Office for National Statistics. No idea how many are girls :D

Sorry tried to space this better but it wasn't having any of it.

PS- The ONS site is a mine of fascinating but not exactly shocking information: for example, the name Holly is more popular among girls born in December than at other times of the year; and the name Summer is more popular in, er, Summer.

Wow so 2002 was the lowest, interesting the birth rate was higher during less economically positive times. Thank you Amber for those numbers!

Why interesting? If you can't afford to go out you 'stay in'!

A nursery owner also told me cold winters play a part!

Yeah in my limited experience the moment of conception is rarely a time for discussion of the potential cost-benefit analysis.

Did a tour of a boys' school this week, and the head mentioned that 2002 was a low birth rate, and that there were more girls - therefore the intake to the boys' school would be less fierce... No statistics to back this up, but that's what was said.

Gloucestershire schools I have visited have indicated a low birth rate in the county for this year's Y6s. Therefore, they are desperate to get bottoms on seats for funding. This can only work in your favour :-) our school has been inundated from letters to parents inviting them to open evenings from schools well out of catchment, a telling sign x
