Notes: Figures exclude cases where the requirement was imposed after commencement. For cases where the length of the requirement was amended after the order was imposed, figures for 2011-12 are for the most recent length, while those for 2012-13 to 2015-16 are for the length when the order was first imposed. This is due to the change from an aggregate to a unit-level return, but the effect is not considered to be substantive.

1. Revisions were made to the 2012-13 to 2014-15 data and, as a consequence, information on the number of hours imposed was unknown for a small number of orders. The average length is therefore calculated on orders where the hours imposed was known.
