Due to small sample sizes, estimates cannot be provided for areas smaller than LEAs. Please note that these estimates are subject to sampling variability and should be viewed in conjunction with their confidence intervals (CIs), which indicate how accurate an estimate is. Confidence intervals have been provided in table 1.
