1 Age diversity and Education diversity is an assessment of Standard Deviation.

2 Birth Country Diversity, Education Country Diversity and Role Diversity is calculated using Blau’s index; an index to measure variety across categories. It ranges from 0 to 1, with 1 indicative of more variety in a given grouping [36].

3 Dispensed Prescription Items.
