Exploring displays

Switching between number and proportion

Where available, a menu above each chart can be used to switch between displaying numbers and proportions. Generally, number will be selected by default when you open a display page.

Reading data points

Additional information will appear when clicking or hovering over a bar in a bar chart, or a point on a trend line. This includes the value represented by the bar/point.

Customising displays

Use the filters and dropdown menus on a display to select and deselect variables. These are located to the right of each display. Charts will automatically update to reflect the chosen variables.
