All percentages, reconviction rates and average number of reconvictions per offender are shown in italics.

These tables can also be found, with additional datasets that contain supplementary information, on the datasets page.

In Tables 1 to 12, the number of offenders that are reconvicted, and the number of reconvictions, are omitted from the bulletin for clarity. These values are included in the additional datasets which accompany this bulletin.

The definitions of reconviction rate and the average number of reconvictions per offender are described in Annex Table A1.
