Notes: Figures include DTTO IIs piloted in the 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 orders 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 2015-16 and 2016-17 since they were last published due to the receipt of updated information from some councils.
