*Including UA (new sequence types as yet unassigned to a clonal complex). Data show the number of human isolates per local authority and the percentage of all typed isolates attributed to each complex. Numbers of C. coli isolates are also shown and included in the denominator of "all typed cases." Isolates with "no typing" represent reports of campylobacteriosis to the surveillance system that do not have a corresponding typed isolate.
†Not included in the "all typed cases" denominator.
