Experimental prison population statistics covering the period 2009-10 to 2019-20, expanding on the previous publication with information about legal statuses, sentences and offences.


An errata was published on 16th February 2022 as a result of changes to Figure 14 in section 3.1.2 (PDF page 27). The previously published chart did not contain the correct information for the offence category “08: Other sexual crimes”. The HTML and PDF have been updated to reflect these changes.
