An index of 1 means that if you pick someone at random from this county or town, you have exactly the same probability of picking someone called COSLETT as if you picked at random from the whole of the UK. Where the index is higher than 1, then you are more likely to find someone called COSLETT here than if you picked from the UK as a whole, and where it's lower then you are less likely.
