Teenage Parent Outcomes Modelling Tool
The Teenage Parent Outcomes Modelling Tool brings together data and evidence about factors that affect outcomes for teenage parents and their babies and children. The tool is for use by teenage pregnancy leads in local authorities and information analysts to help the planning and commissioning of effective local services.
The tool presents data about conceptions and births for each local authority and makes comparisons with the region, England and statistical neighbours. You can use the tool to model the potential impact of services that aim to improve outcomes for teenage mothers and their babies, for example setting up a new stop smoking service for young mothers. The outcomes modelled include: teenage pregnancies; smoking during pregnancy; child poverty; low birth weight; stillbirths; infant mortality; breastfeeding initiation; and young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET).
For more resources see our Teenage Conceptions Knowledge Hub which brings together key resources – data, policy, guidance, evidence – about issues relating to teenage pregnancy and young parents.
The tool has been designed in Office 2010. For users of pre-2010 versions of Microsoft Office, we have made a 2007 version available.
