Footnotes

  1. Local authority response rates to the data collection vary by census date. To account for non-response, national and regional figures have been uprated based on local authority pupil populations. 
  2. Rates of EHE are calculated based on ONS <a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/populationandmigration/populationestimates/datasets/estimatesofthepopulationforenglandandwales">mid-year population estimates</a> for children aged 5 to 16 years. The rates for 2023/24 are based on 2022 population estimates.
