The total number of injury hospitalisations in each LGA is based on the place of residence of the injured person, not where the injury occurred
The equal interval method divides the range of selected count or rate of injury hospitalisations into equal-sized sub ranges.
The quantile method divide the ranges in such a way that the each range contains equal number of local government areas.
The standard deviation method create the ranges with equal value ranges that are a proportion of the standard deviation.
This Method classify the data based on Arithmetic Progression
This Method classify the data based on Geometric Progression
The Jenks method identifies the ranges that maximise the difference and less variation in each class.
