1. A restructuring of recording methodology and data management arrangements in Fife Constabulary from April 2011 resulted in an increase in the number of racist incidents.

2. Population estimates are as at mid-year from the National Records of Scotland (NRS) (http://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/statistics-and-data/statistics/statistics-by-theme/population/population-estimates/mid-year-population-estimates). NRS have announced discrepancies in the mid-year population estimates. See section 6.35 for more details.
