Notes: 2011-12 figures are based on an aggregate return and may include extra requirements issued after the initial imposition of the order. This is not the case for figures based on the unit-level return from 2012-13 onward. The difference is not thought to be substantive.

1. The fall in the use of the conduct requirement after 2011-12 is due to a 2012 appeal court judgement that conduct requirements must be specific and include more than general conditions to stay out of trouble or to refrain from committing another criminal offence. This will have an impact on the level of supervision requirements as orders with a conduct requirement should also include supervision.

2. Figures for 2012-13 to 2014-15 have been revised from those previously published due to the receipt of updated information from some councils.
