1. Figures for previous cohorts may differ from previously published figures as updated information is fed into the Scottish Offenders Index.

2. The non-court disposals dataset is independent of the dataset on court convictions.

3. Includes any non-court disposal within one year of receiving a police disposal, and therefore could include COPFS disposals as well as police disposals.

4. The percentage of individuals receiving a non-court disposal within a year of receiving a police disposal.

5. Formal Adult Warnings were replaced and extended by Recorded Police Warnings in January 2016 which cover a wider range of offences. Formal Adult Warnings given after January 2016 were for offences committed before January 2016.
