  1. Note. One participant did not provide their postcode and this table only displays data for participants from England. Northern Ireland (n = 2), Wales (n = 5), Scotland (n = 2) all have separate indices. Of the five Welsh participants 3 participants were from the 50% least deprived Lower Super Output Areas and two participants were from the 30–50% most deprived Lower Super Output Areas. Of the two Scottish participants, one was from Band 1 of 5 (ranked 584 out of 6976 data zones, where 1 is the most deprived) and one was from Band 4 of 5 (ranked 5571 out of 6976 data zones). Of the two participants from Northern Ireland one participant was from an area ranked 316 out of 890 areas and another was from an area ranked 881 out of 890 areas (where 1 is the most deprived)
