Notes:

The number of requirements completed may be a slight underestimate as some local authorities were not able to supply full details for orders where the unpaid work element was completed but some part of the order (usually the supervision element) was not completed in that year. Figures for time taken to complete requirements are expressed in terms of calendar days. Figures for 2015-16 to 2017-18 have been revised from those previously published due to the receipt of updated information from some councils.
