'Residential social care home' locations are defined as locations with a Primary Inspection Category of 'Residential social care', or with an Organisation Type of 'Social Care Organisation' and any of the Service Types 'Care home services with nursing', 'Care home services without nursing' or 'Specialist college services'
  3. This data is at location level only.
  4. The data for 2010 reflects both an incomplete year of reporting, i.e. from 1 April 2010, and from a starting point of data from the National Health Service providers alone, before social care and independent healthcare providers across the United Kingdom England were included.
  5. Data for 2020 is up to and including 7 January.
