Precision: County district estimates are based on a model applied to top tier local authorities. This model relied on a probabilistic allocation of cases to Local Authorities based on postal sector of residence. A regression model uses number of users in treatment (2006/07) to disaggregate the County level estimates to County Districts. The number of users in treatment will have impacted on the prevalence estimates published by the Home Office and the regression model which may introduce bias to the estimates.
