Notes on the data: Overview

The individual Notes on the data

The individual Notes on the data website pages - linked within the maps; and selected pages (refer to section below) - include:

  • a policy context statement;
  • specific notes for each indicator, where relevant;
  • statistical information (ie numerator, denominator and detail of analysis);
  • and the data source(s).

The Notes on the data pdf

A combined version of the Notes on the data (.pdf format) is also available, and is additionally linked within the data workbooks (xls). However, this .pdf is a simplified version of the individual notes, as it does not include the policy context statements.
