Notes: Receptions do not equate to persons received since someone receiving a custodial sentence after a period on remand, or several custodial sentences at different times or from different courts, will be counted more than once. Counting conventions are described in more detail in Section 5. Average sentence imposed excludes life and Section 205 sentences.
