§ Ms Blears
The Government have no plans to designate teenagers in this way. Where practicable, relevant and justified, statistical collections include information on the date of birth or age of patients or other statistical subjects. These permit analysis by 333W different age groups of interest. In other areas, the data collected may include analysis by age groups that are relevant for policy, legal or other reasons to the subject matter of the statistics, and these may cover partly or wholly the 13 to 19 age group.
