1. Since 2013-14, not all offence categories are comparable with previous years data. Please see Annex 2 of the Recorded Crime in Scotland, 2013-14 publication for further information.

2. Shows the number of offence referrals received by the Children's Reporter in each year. A referral may relate to more than one offence. Please note that the data definitions around this measure have been changed to exclude cases which are jointly referred to the Children's Reporter and the Procurator Fiscal, since these cases will be included in the Procurator Fiscal action totals. This change has been applied retrospectively to historical data

3. Number of people with main penalty as recorded on the Police Scotland's Criminal History System (CHS). The combined number of fiscal fines and fixed penalties is underestimated by around 2,700 in 2008-09 and 500 in 2009-10.

4. Figures relate to cases which were closed as offer paid/accepted/deemed accepted.

5. Number of cases of highest disposal as recorded on the Crown Office Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) information system.

6. Includes cases diverted from prosecution, e.g. to the Children's Reporter, cases transferred within COPFS and cases rolled up with other ongoing cases.
