Errata

An errata was published on 21/10/2016 for Table 4 of the main tables "Cases initiated and disposed of in the sheriff courts, by sheriffdom". An error was identified with the calculation of the "2014-15 cases per 1,000 population". All values have now been revised and in addition uses corrected population estimates provided by NRS (Supplementary Table S13). (PDF page 57).

The pdf and html have both been updated within the document to reflect this change.
