Hi! I have just discovered FreeCen/FreeReg/FreeBMD, and am very glad they exist!

I do have a question, however, about FreeCen's coverage, and I'm wondering if someone here could enlighten me.

They list their coverage here: https://www.freecen.org.uk/freecen_coverage?locale=en

My question is, what is the difference between the counties that are listed on this page but with zeroes in the "number of individuals" column and counties that are not listed at all? (For example, Shetland is listed with numbers in 1841, with a zero in 1851, not listed at all in the 1861 and subsequent censuses.) Does being listed but with a zero mean that it is next in the queue to be transcribed? Or does not being listed at all mean that it is simply not available to be transcribed? Or is there some other difference?

Many thanks in advance!

Sorry to anyone who read this within the first 3 minutes of it appearing, as you would have found it to be an incomplete question. I accidentally pressed enter and submitted the question too early!

I have found this https://sites.rootsweb.com/~engfc/ where it says "A ‘0’ (zero) indicates that the transcription process has been started for that year."
