Mothers’ Country of Birth

Between 2007 and 2019, the proportion of births to non-UK born mothers in Aberdeen increased from just under a quarter to just over a third (23% to 36%). During that period, the average in Scotland as a whole increased from 11% to 18%, with figures in Aberdeenshire and Moray slightly lower. Between 2007 and 2012, the number of births increased in Grampian, from 6,108 to 6,470, but this declined in 2017 to 5,917, and again in 2019 to 5,476. There was a similar trend across Scotland, but births to non-UK born mothers continued to increase.
