The turnover rate is found by calculating the number of cases in the past seven days divided by the number of people living in the area. Then this number is multiplied by 100,000.

Each neighborhood is divided using Super Average Outflow Area (MSOA) data, breaking down districts into smaller areas, to give a picture of the increase in cases. Each region has an average population of around 7,200 people to present an equal image in all parts of the country.

There are currently 12 ‘blues’ in Somerset. These are areas with a case rate of between 100 and 199 per 100,000 population.
