(1) Due to changes in recording practices in 2011 some HDC r+A1:N70ecalls were, for statistical purposes only, not correctly identified between 2011 and 2013. For this edition of OMSQ we have changed the data source used for HDC recalls to the Public Protection Unit Database which will ensure that recalls during the HDC period are now properly identified. Consequently, figures from 2011 onwards have been revised and are now taken from this new data source resulting in a break in series from 2011. Figures for 2010 are not available.
