Definitions and data sources

The first graph shows how the average number of missing, decayed or filled teeth for 5-year-olds varies by local authority.

The second graph shows how the average number of missing, decayed or filled teeth for 5-year-olds in Wales compares with the rest of Great Britain.

The data source for both graphs is a large 2005/06 survey conducted by the British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry.

Overall adequacy of the indicator: high.  The data is based on a very large survey.
