“Numbers have no way of speaking for themselves; we speak for them, we imbue them with meaning” Nate Silver, Statistician

NCMD began collecting data all children who die in England on 1 April 2019, as part of the Child Death Review process and through a multi-agency information gathering process. There are two ways in which child death data is analysed by NCMD: Real-time surveillance of deaths as they occur, and analysis of reviewed data (comprehensive information collected as part of a review undertaken by local Child Death Overview Panels (CDOPs)).

It is important that the information we hold is viewed in the context of a range of considerations such as analysis methodology and data limitations as well as insights and recommendations – and so we publish data in the form of reports.
