  1. Under National Statistics rounding conventions all figures are rounded to the nearest 10, numbers ending in 5 have been rounded up to the nearest multiple of 10 to avoid systematic bias.
  2. Figures below 5 are denoted by ¬.
  3. Zero is denoted by 0.
  4. Totals and sub-totals have been rounded separately and may not equal the sum of their rounded parts.
