Notes:
Fiscal work orders were introduced nationally on 1 April 2015, having been piloted in a small number of local authority areas since June 2008.
1. Age is at commencement of order.
2. The breakdown by employment status for 2015-16 has changed slightly since its original publication due to the receipt of revised figures for West Lothian.
3. Includes those who are retired, supported by family, caring for home/family or long-term sick/disabled.
4. The percentages for ethnicity represent the proportions of cases where the ethnicity was known.
