Notes on tables

25. Where a table refers to average daily populations, components may not add to totals due to rounding. Data are derived from a live information management system and updated and quality assured on an on-going basis. The figures shown here may therefore differ slightly from those published previously. Where substantive revisions have been made to improve the quality of the data, these will be indicated in the footnotes.

26. Population figures exclude prisoners on early release such as Home Detention Curfew, but include prisoners on temporary release such as extended home leave. Prisoners may be classified as unlawfully at large due to absconding (not returning from temporary release as scheduled) or having breached their Home Detention Curfew conditions: such prisoners are currently included in the population counts.

27. The following symbols are used throughout.
