Footnotes

  1. x is used when the data is unavailable. This is used when the data was not collected in that year.
  2. Caution should be taken when comparing 2021 figures with previous years due to the potential impact of COVID disruptions on the 2021 data
  3. 2010 data corresponds to 2010-11, 2011 data corresponds to 2011-12, 2012 data corresponds to 2012-13, 2014 data corresponds to 2014-15. There was no survey in 2013, 2015 and 2016. 2019 survey was with families with children aged 0-4 and so the data are not directly comparable. 2020 data is presented separately in the supporting files due to a limited sample caused by COVID-19 disruption, limiting comparisons.
  4. z refers to an observation that is not applicable. This is used for 2019 data as this was completed by parents of 0-4s only.
