  1. From 2023, the data collection changed from aggregated figures at local authority level, to a person level collection. This has been a major change in approach and as such care should be taken with comparisons across this period. Further detail on the change is provided in the publication and supporting methodology.
  2. Data is not shown for a small number of local authorities for 2022 while further data checks are ongoing. This is denoted by 'x'.
