  1. National and regional numbers have been rounded to the nearest 10. Local authority figures are unrounded. Historical data may differ from older publications which is mainly due to amendments made by local authorities after the previous publication. Percentages have been rounded to whole numbers. Note that percentages may not sum to 100 due to rounding.
  2. For confidentiality purposes, numbers from one to five inclusive have been replaced in the published tables by a 'c'. Where any number is shown as zero, the original figure submitted was zero. Percentages that would round to zero but are not zero, for example where a percentage is <0.5%, have been suppressed and replaced by a 'k'.
