  1. * Where data on exposure category captured
  2. § Risk categories are grouped based on hierarchical categories. Any one person with multiple risks may ONLY be represented in the highest category
  3. ± These groups presented are NOT mutually exclusive, meaning a case can be represented in multiple groupings. These summarised categories are meant to give a broader picture of the exposure categories and will NOT add up to the overall total number of participants
