Symbols and conventions
In ONS mortality outputs symbols used are:
denotes not available
u low reliability
Further guidance on the use of symbols in tables is available.
Rates are not calculated where there are fewer than 3 deaths in a cell, denoted by (u). It is ONS practice not to calculate rates where there are fewer than 3 deaths in a cell, as rates based on such low numbers are susceptible to inaccurate interpretation. Rates that are based on between 3 and 19 deaths are displayed in tables but are denoted by (u) as a warning to the user that their reliability as a measure may be affected by the small number of events.
