  1. [u] Statistics based on an "unweighted base" (sample size) of less than 10 are not shown. Statistics based on an "unweighted base" of 10 or greater but less than 30 should be treated with caution and are only indicative.
  2. The way voluntary, private and ‘other’ group-based providers are defined changed between 2021 and 2022. This means year-on-year comparisons for these categories of provider are not possible. Figures for the total ‘all group-based provider’ category are not affected and can be compared.
