Births, deaths and other vital events figures released

Provisional figures for births, deaths, adoptions, marriages and civil partnerships registered during 2013 have been published by the National Records of Scotland.

The statistics show that there were nearly 3,000 fewer marriages in Scotland in 2013 compared to 2012. The fall of around 10% takes the annual total to just above the level in 2009, which saw the fewest marriages in over a century.

The provisional figures also show that:

- There were 530 civil partnerships (216 male and 314 female), 44 fewer than during 2012.

- 56,014 births were registered in the year – 2,013 (3.5%) fewer than in 2012.

- 54,700 deaths were registered in Scotland in 2013 – 237 (0.4%) fewer than in 2012. This is the fourth lowest number of deaths recorded in over 150 years. Only 2009, 2010 and 2011 had lower totals.

- Deaths from cancer fell by 0.4% to 15,803, deaths from coronary heart disease fell by 4.6% to 7,192, and there were 4,444 deaths from stroke (a drop of 0.7%).
