Notes:

Childminder figures taken from the Care Commission's Annual Returns ( Table 14) are outwith the scope of National Statistics. Not all childminders completed an Annual Return. Therefore, the data have been weighted up to the total number of childminders registered with the Care Commission. Previously submitted information on gender, age and ethnicity has been used to help improve the estimates for these figures
