1. The victim/complainer is the person who perceived the incident to be racist. The complainer may not necessarily be the person(s) at whom the racist incident was targeted. See Section 2.7 for more.

2. Previous incidents occurring within the previous two years.

3. Data for 2013-14, has a far larger number of unknowns and therefore caution is urged when comparing across years - see section 6.29 for more details
