a For the method of estimating the child 'set' sample, see Section 1.6.4. Estimated bases have been rounded

b Only 2 children per household were eligible for interview so if more than 2 children were in the household the additional ones were not interviewed

c Height and weight measurements were only taken from children aged 2+. As the set sample is based on children aged 0 to 15 the figures shown will underestimate the height and weight response rates
