General description

Since 2009-10 data have been extracted from the Incident Recording System (IRS). This is a live system and consequently it is possible that data extracted at a different time may not match the figures in this table. For instance the data published in the Performance Indicator tables are extracted at a different time and so may not match exactly those presented here.

2010-11 data were extracted from IRS in May 2012.
2011-12 data were extracted from IRS in May 2013.

Statistical quality

Since 2009-10 data have been extracted from the Incident Recording System (IRS). This is a live system and consequently it is possible that data extracted at a different time may not match the figures in this table. For instance the data published in the Performance Indicator tables are extracted in July and so are unlikely to match exactly those presented here.
