  • The numbers in the columns for lobar pneumonia and for pneumococcal pneumonia exceed those in the column for ‘pneumococcal disease, combined’ because some people had a diagnosis of each of the first two conditions on different occasions; and because the ‘pneumococcal disease, combined’ totals also include cases of pneumococcal septicaemia and meningitis.

  • *Adjusted for sex, age in 5-year bands, time period in single calendar years in the ORLS1 and LHES datasets, and also adjusted for district of residence in ORLS1 and ORLS2, and for region of residence and deprivation score associated with patient's area of residence, in quintiles, in the LHES dataset.
