The Total column shows the total number of people in that county or town with this surname. For example, there were 79 people called DACOSTA in London at the time of the 1881 census.

The Frequency column shows the percentage of people in this county or town with this surname. For example, a frequency of 0.0027 in London means that 0.0027% of the people in London on census day were called DACOSTA.

The Index column shows the relative probability of finding someone called DACOSTA in this county or town, compared with the probability of finding them anywhere in Britain as a whole. 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 DACOSTA 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 DACOSTA here than if you picked from the UK as a whole, and where it's lower then you are less likely. The actual figure shows the level of probability - for example, a figure of 2 would indicate that you are twice as likely to find someone called DACOSTA here than in the UK as a whole, and 10 would make it ten times as likely. The value of 10.00 in London means that you are 10.00 times as likely to find someone with the surname of DACOSTA in London than you would be in the whole of the UK.
