  1. Time between roles is calculated as the time in days (including weekends and bank holidays) between a social worker leaving a role and starting a new role. For example, if a leaver ended a role on a Friday and started new role on a Monday, the time between roles is calculated as 3 days. If a leaver started their new role on the same day that they left their previous role, time between roles calculated as zero days.
  2. Components may not sum to totals due to rounding.
