  1. Method 1 is a simple count, Method 2 is an average count per parcel, Method 3 is an average count per unit area, and Method 4 is proportion of area with a variable present
  2. SD standard deviation
  3. aN for public nuisances is 1356 due to data availability
  4. bN for tenancy is 1358 due to data availability
  5. cCrime is not constructed using Methods 2 or 4 as crime is measured at the block level
