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
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.

Frequency of publication
Annual

Data reference periods
Data are shown for each financial year from 2012-13.
