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, changes were made in City of Edinburgh and Midlothian as to how the reason for being unemployed was recorded. This led to some orders which would previously have been recorded as unemployed being recorded as economically inactive.

4. Figures for 2015-16 and 2016-17 have been revised from those previously published due to the receipt of updated information from some councils.
