Notes:

1. The figures for the total net budget covering education, community, youth justice and children and young people’s services are drawn from unitary local authorities’ 2009-10 Children, Schools and Families Financial Data Collection (Budget Table 1 line 8) submitted to the DCSF. Figures are rounded to the nearest £1,000 and may not sum due to rounding.

2. The per head figures are calculated by dividing the total net budget by the projected population aged 0 to 19 at mid-2009 in each LA. Figures are rounded to the nearest £10 and may not sum due to rounding. Cash terms figures as reported by local authorities in England as at 12 January 2010.
