General description
This table presents data in relation to allegations of abuse against adults. The Welsh Government requires local authorities to deliver annual adult protection reports, including data to commonly agreed standards established through 'In Safe Hands', published in 2000. While extensive efforts have been made to gather reliable and accurate information from local authorities, the data remains imperfect. For this reason, caution is needed in drawing
conclusions from the data if they are not supported by other evidence.


Data collection and calculation
Up to 2011-12, the data was been collected from local authorities via one of two ways.
• Most authorities used a database system to record the details of individual referrals, and
these were then shared with the Welsh Government at the end of each year.
• The remaining authorities supplied data on a pre-defined form. In each year, this form has
asked for counts of referrals for each of a series of aspects (e.g. category of vulnerability,
abuse type, status of allegation and so on), often broken down by age and gender.

For the year 2012-13 onwards, a single form for the collection of data from all local authorities is in operation. This is supported by the improved guidance that has been developed in conjunction with local authority adult protection co-ordinators.
