Notes:

1. Respondents who reported multiple ethnic origins are counted more than once in this table, as they are included in the multiple responses for each origin they reported. For example, a respondent who reported 'English and Scottish' would be included in the multiple responses for English and for Scottish.

2. This is a total population count. The sum of the ethnic groups in this table is greater than the total population count because a person may report more than one ethnic origin in the census.

3. The abbreviation 'n.i.e.' means 'not included elsewhere.'

4. The abbreviation 'n.o.s.' means 'not otherwise specified.'
