12. Data prior to 2008-09 cannot be compared directly with later data, and is discussed here only to provide historical context. For more information, see the Quality of the statistics section.

13. Applications and grants in any one year may not relate to the same cases because of the interval between an application and a decision to grant. Also note that granted cases may not always proceed.
