Accessing regional data and mapping

Regional data – with corresponding interactive maps - are accessible from the Explore the data mapping channel. There are two ways to access this information:

1. From the Homepage, use the dual drop-down menus to find a region. Once you have selected a region, click the View charts & maps button.

2. Select the Explore the data menu (top left tab) and use the sub-menus to select a region.

Within the Explore the data mapping channel, you can access a range of charts by clicking on the chart link at the bottom of the data pane. If the data pane is not displaying, simply click on the View data button - located above the map. To select another region, simply pan the map and click on a region, or use one of the above methods.

All data available from the Explore the data mapping channel can be downloaded in Excel files from the Downloads channel.
