1. The statistics in this table and Table 10 do not equal the total number of disposals for divorce and dissolution shown in Table 6 and Table 7. This is because the statistics in Table 6 and Table 7 include all disposals of divorce/dissolution cases whereas this table and Table 10 only include divorces and dissolutions that were actually granted. In addition the statistics in this table and Table 10 were derived from a different data extract.
