Addenda / Errata
The data used to produce this publication has the subject of recent revision. The 2017-18 data was not submitted by Glasgow City Council and in the 2017-18 publication we had to use Glasgow’s 2016-17 data. The 2017-18 Glasgow data became available in the early summer of 2020 and is now incorporated in a republication of Childrens Social Work Statistics 2018-19.
An Addenda was published on 13th August 2019 in order to release data on the usage of emergency and short term beds in secure units. This data was not available when this publication was initially released on 26th March 2019. Table 3.2 has been updated to include the emergency and short term bed usage statistics, along with the commentary accompanying the table. More information on the Addenda is available in the Background Notes, sections 4.16 to 4.18.
The HTML and PDF have been updated to reflect these changes.
An Errata was published on 27th March 2019 as a result of date changes on PDF pages 1, where 'Comparisons to 2017-18' was changed to 'Comparisons to 2016-17'.
A further Errata was published on the 22nd October 2019 as a result of changes on Page 24 of the publication, where the paragraph headed Bed complement should state that there are 7 rather than 6 beds for emergency and respite use.
The figures for concerns identified at the case conferences of children who were on the child protection register at 31 July 2018, by local authority (additional table 4.5) were corrected.
The figures for young people discharged from, and admitted to secure care accommodation by gender and destination(additional tables 5.1 and 5.5) were corrected.
The 2017-18 publication has been re-issued, with updates to the HTML and PDF versions of this publication to reflect these changes, and corrected additional tables and 4.5, 5.1, 5.5
