16 wards issued zero new honorary signs


However, the 15 wards (30%) which issued 3 or more signs, accounted for 70% of the new honorary signs in 2016. (59 of 85 new signs)

Where as the number of wards that designate zero signs from year to year is very consistent, the quantities of signs issued by the top 30% has been increasing.  A few wards issue a lot more signs.

These numbers do not account for ward geographic size nor the population of the ward.
