- Where are our cases?
As the number of cases in the borough has fallen significantly, it now means that much of the data at ward level has to be suppressed due to the small number of cases in each ward. For this reason, the ward level data has now been taken off this website.
However, small area data remains available for statistical areas called middle super output areas (MSOAS), these cover different geographical areas to wards, but still provide a useful breakdown of cases in the borough.
- Who are our cases?
