1. The statistics in this table and Table 9 do not equal the total number of disposals for divorce and dissolution shown in Table 6 and Table 7. This is because the statistics in Table 6 and Table 7 include all disposals of divorce/dissolution cases whereas this table and Table 9 only include divorces and dissolutions that were actually granted. In addition the statistics in this table and Table 9 were derived from a different data extract. 

2. There have been changes to sheriff court dissolutions for 2017-18, increasing them by nine (2 ordinary and 7 simplified). Last year's publication has not been corrected to show these changes.
