Prevalence of FGM in England and Wales

This report contains estimates of the numbers of women with female genital mutilation (FGM) living in England and Wales, the numbers of women with FGM giving birth, and the numbers of girls born to women with FGM. Headline figures for England and Wales as a whole were published in an interim report.

This full report contains estimates at a local authority level. To enable interpretation of these data, it also contains data about the extent to which FGM is practiced in the women’s countries of origin and about the populations of women born in these countries and living in England and Wales in 2011.
