Notes:

1. Figures for sheriff solemn and sheriff summary include estimates as some local authorities were not able to distinguish between solemn and summary for all orders.

2. Revisions have been made to the data for 2013-14 to 2016-17. A consequence of this, for the years 2013-14 and 2014-15, was that the court type for some orders was unknown for those years. The percentages are therefore calculated on the total orders where the court type was known.
