Notes: Figures exclude cases where the requirement was imposed after commencement. Orders where the client did not/was unable to comply or transferred from another jurisdiction are included in the 'not known/applicable' category. These cases are not included in the percentage figures. Some local authorities were not able to provide complete unit-level information for some of the years 2012-13 to 2015-16, resulting in an increase in the number of 'not known' responses for those years and therefore limited comparability between 2011-12 and the subsequent years.

1. An error was spotted in the previously published figures for 2012-13 to 2014-15. As a result of this, figures for the categories "over 7 working days - 3 weeks", "over 3 weeks - 1 month", "over 1 month - 2 months" and "over 2 months" have been revised. There have also been smaller revisions to all figures for these years due to the receipt of updated information from some councils.
