This Statistical First Release presents data collected from Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs) in England. The data collection was introduced from 1 April 2008 and is designed to collect information on the number of child deaths which have been reviewed by Child Death Overview Panels (CDOPs) on behalf of their LSCBs.

This is the sixth year of the collection and covers reviews completed between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2016. It includes information about the characteristics of the children who died from all CDOPs (for example the age, gender and cause of death).

Data collected from CDOPs on the reviews completed in earlier years can be found at: data collected from CDOPs.
