There are also some charts where you have the ability to "drill down" to more granular information, this is indicated by a group of arrows in the top right hand corner when your mouse pointer hovers over the chart. 

It should be noted that the reports will update once daily therefore when looking at the most current information e.g. today, there may be some incidents which will appear in the charts at the next refresh.
