1. Domestic abuse crimes and offences with a statutory domestic abuse aggravation. The statutory aggravation came into effect on the 24th April 2017 for crimes that took place on or after this date, Many of the domestic abuse crimes that were convicted in court in 2017-18 are likely to have been committed prior to 24th April 2017, so there will be fewer domestic abuse index convictions and reconvictions compared to the identifier.

2. Also includes reconvictions for crimes and offences with the statutory domestic abuse aggravation.
