Click on any neighbourhood to highlight it in the bar chart and show a time trend where data is available. Click on certain column headers to sort the table by that variable.
11. Table of Selected Year Results for Comparison Geographies. This table shows rates, confidence intervals, number of cases and sample notes. The shaded circles to the left of the names indicate the colours used to show results for the comparator in both the bar chart and the time trend.
