Note 1:- Only includes cases where contact was maintained until duty discharge.

Note 2:- Includes cases assessed as homeless or threatened with homelessness, and also those assessed as not homeless.

Note 3:- In November 2012 the Scottish Parliament approved the Homelessness (Abolition of Priority Need Test) (Scotland) Order 2012. This meets the homelessness commitment and ensures that from 31st December 2012 onwards, local authorities no longer apply the priority need test to homeless households. This table is based on the closure date. Some cases may have been assessed as priority need prior to 31st December 2012 but have only had their final rehousing outcome in 2013-14. Hence, cases assessed after this date will include all cases assessed as unintentionally homeless or unintentionally threatened with homelessness.
