The situation improves markedly in the first half of the eighteenth century, where 40 percent or more of the English births are generally included and more than a quarter of the Irish; in the later eighteenth century around 70 percent of the Southern English and London births are included in age-specific fertility tables, along with about half of those from the genealogies and Northern English and Scottish areas, while the Irish slipped to below one-fifth.
