1) Where sample size is small estimates are unreliable, so have not been reported here.

2) 2020 data is modelled differently to previous years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and some data could not be collected. The dwelling sample for 2020 includes occupied properties only.

3) The sample for workless households excludes cases where no-one in the household is of working age.

4) The sample for disability status excludes unknown cases.
