Detail

We have produced this publication in accordance with the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority. It contains aggregate-level data received on a quarterly basis from each local authority.

Historically, the figures in these releases have not allowed for imputation of any missing values and headline numbers were based on the summation of the data presented in the tables. As some authorities do not return a form and some can’t answer all the questions, the presence of missing values can affect the interpretation of trends.

Therefore to help users understand the possible impact, this year’s First Release includes imputed totals for the whole country across the full time series.

Coverage: Great Britain

Geographic breakdown: local authority and county

Frequency: bi-annual

Next release date: 11 September 2013
