1. Figures for initiations and disposals do not necessarily refer to the same cases.
2. The number of cases disposed of is likely an underestimate.
3. Decree by default is a new category brought through by the new case management information system. Data for this new category only covers November 2016 to March 2017.
4. Data from the new case management system is not currently split between 'defended' and 'undefended', therefore these have been combined into a single category.
wa 5. Includes cases disposed as refused, dropped from roll and withdrawn.
