Supplementary notes

* From 20 March to 10 May, the "stay at home" measures were defined as leaving your home for only the following reasons: "Key worker travelling to work", "Shopping for basic necessities", "Any medical need" or "Exercise once a day". Any respondent who had either not left their home or left their home in the past 7 days for only these reasons was considered to have followed the "stay at home" measures. The estimates from 14-17 May will be based on these reasons for leaving the house, but may not be directly comparable to previous weeks as "travelling to work" includes all workers.
