Note: Figures include DTTO IIs, which have been piloted in the City of Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian areas since June 2008.
1. Age is at commencement of order. Figures may include a small number of under 16s.
2. Includes those who are retired, supported by family, caring for home/family or long-term sick/disabled.
3. In 2013-14, City of Edinburgh, Midlothian and Aberdeenshire separately identified a small number of records where the employment status was unknown. The percentages by employment status for that year are therefore calculated as a proportion of orders where this was known. Changes were also made in City of Edinburgh and Midlothian as to how the reason for being unemployed was recorded. This has led to some orders which would previously have been recorded as unemployed being recorded as economically inactive.
4. Figures for 2014-15 have been revised from those previously published due to the receipt of updated information from some councils.
