Notes:

1. Figures for sheriff solemn and sheriff summary include estimates as some local authorities were not able to distinguish between solemn and summary.

2. Revisions were made to the 2012-13 to 2014-15 data and, as a consequence, the court type for some orders was unknown. The percentages are therefore calculated on the total orders where the court type was known.

3. A further revision has been made to the 2014-15 figures due to the categories "sheriff solemn" and "sheriff summary" for Stirling being wrongly allocated to each other.
