Precision: There is the potential for error in the collection, collation and interpretation of the data (bias may be introduced due to poor response rates and selective opt out of larger children which it is not possible to control for). The data is originally recorded at PCT level which has been converted to LA level using birth weighting. If there are several LAs within one PCT they will all have the same prevalence, thereby masking any variation in prevalence which may exist within that PCT. Confidence intervals apply
