Brass Band Vacancy Statistics - Some Pretty Graphs

Do you like pretty graphs? We've just added a statistics page that graphs the current list of vacancies.

What can we conclude from this data...

  • Bands are mainly looking for cornet, BBb and percussion players.
  • Bands in the Fourth and Third sections are the main ones looking for players.
  • Bands in the North of England and Yorkshire regions have most seats filled.

Of course given the sample size my A-Level Statistics head is telling me to treat these statistics and the conclusions with a degree of caution.

How do these current findings compare with the state of banding in your region?  Feel free to leave a comment below.
