The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician. I have asked him to reply.
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent question concerning how many fatal accidents have occurred to (a) adults and (b) children in domestic swimming pools in each of the last five years. (216789)
The most recently available information is for deaths in 2003. Figures for deaths due to accidental drowning in adults and children are shown in the table below for each year from 2001 to 2003. Although accidental drowning deaths are available for years prior to 2001 it is not possible to say if these deaths occurred in domestic swimming pools.
|Number of deaths in Year|
|(a) Adults||(b) Children|
(15)Figures are for deaths occurring in each calendar year.
