Notes: Figures include DTTO IIs piloted in City of Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian areas since June 2008. The first case management meeting involves clarifying requirements and expectations, and drawing up a case management plan. Orders where the client did not/was unable to comply or transferred from another jurisdiction are included in the 'not known/applicable' category. These cases are not included in the percentage figures.

1. Some small changes have been made to the figures for 2012-13 and 2014-15 since they were last published due to the receipt of updated information from some councils.
