SA3s where the total population was less than 2,500 or where the population of people aged 17 years and under was less than 200 are excluded from analysis.
Suppression protocol for calculating age-standardised rates:
The following age groups were used for calculating age standardised rates: 0-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-17.
