The impact of a partial NCMP collection year has had a significant impact on the data below national level.
At region level, the larger sample sizes and data quality analysis indicates that the findings are comparable to previous NCMP years and therefore, outputs at region level are included in this section.
The impact at Local Authority (LA) level is significant. In March some LAs had completed the measurements for the year, some were in the process of measuring children and some LAs had not yet started. Each LA has been assigned to a category in this publication.
