  1. a54% of 1412 children were identified in PLASC; 40% in EYC. Summer 2014 was the last school census dataset requested for the pilot thus not all children would have been expected to be in school (i.e. only by March 2014, would all children have turned 3 years of age)
  2. b1 record received does not contain any data and therefore following further data cleaning may be removed
