1. These data are classed as Experimental Statistics: Data being developed, as the data are not yet of sufficient quality to be labelled as National Statistics.

2. Unknown local authority is where data wasn’t available on the first part of an offenders' postcode so they could not be assigned to a local authority. This also includes a small number where postcodes were supplied, but they were not valid Scottish postcodes.
