|Time frame of data and timeliness||NRS birth registrations are finalised and provided to PHS while termination data is published by PHS prior to the release of teenage pregnancy statistics.|
|Coverage||Reports data across NHS Scotland from 1994.|
|Completeness||Considered complete. There may be a very small number of late abortion notification forms received. Data are then revised at following year's update.|
|Accuracy||Abortion notification information on forms is clerically checked and also validated at data entry and NRS birth registrations data are not supplied to ISD until considered final. Statistics are compared to previous year's figures.|
|Continuity of data||Data is continuously reported since 1994.|
|Concepts and definitions||Concepts and definitions are provided in the full report available on the PHS website. (https://publichealthscotland.scot/publications/teenage-pregnancies/)|
|Disclosure||The PHS statistical disclosure protocol has been followed.|
|Revision statement||Data are considered final. Receipt of late abortion notifications may be received after publication, with figures being revised at next update.|
|Official statistics designation||National Statistics|
|Relevance and key uses of the statistics||Making information publicly available for planning, epidemiology, provision of services, monitoring standards, and the statistics provide comparative information.|
