The following information is returned upon searching for a surname:
NUMBER OF OCCURRENCES
The total number of data base records that coincide with the search string.
The percentage is calculated from the number of surnames found in the search result and the total number of surnames in the data base: p(%) = (Surnames found / All surnames) x 100.
This is the surname´s place in terms of its frequency out of the whole set of distinct names in the data base. The number of surnames sharing the same position in this ranking is given in parentheses.
NUMBER OF DISTRICTS
The number of council districts in which the surname is registered.
This is followed by a table with details about the location of the surname in question for each council district:
Listing of council districts (municipalities) in which the surname is registered.
The province to which the council district belongs.
The number of instances of registration of the surname in this district.
Percentage of the total number of surnames registered in the district; p(%) = (Number of occurrences of the surname in the district / Total number of all surname occurrences in the district) x 100
By default, the data are sorted in decreasing order by the number in the Percent column. This order can be changed to alphabetical order by district or province, or absolute numerical order, by clicking on the arrows in the column headings.
