Notes:

1. Females aged under 20.

2. Percentage of all pregnancies in each postcode sector.

3. Where the number of teenage pregnancies were between one and four the data have been barnardised. This involves some of the non-zero cells being randomly modified by the addition or subtraction of one.

4. Due to the wide variation of size of postcode sectors and the number of pregnancies within each area confidence intervals have been given. This is to reflect the high degree of chance variation due to small numbers. The 95% confidence interval suggests that there is a 95% probability that the true underlying rate lies somewhere between the upper and lower confidence interval.
