At the start of this year a programme of work began to review each chapter of the offender management statistics quarterly publication to ensure it continues to meet users’ needs.
This statistical notice and consultation document has been published one week ahead of the corresponding edition of offender management statistics quarterly due on 31 July 2014. This is in order to pre-announce the publication of two sets of statistics in the scheduled publication on 31 July 2014 that were not originally planned to be part of this release.
The two sets of additional statistics are:
- updated annual prison population tables
- new quarterly statistics about prisoners released on temporary licence
Users of these statistics are encouraged to give their views and feedback on other changes proposed to the series set out in the notice. Details of how to give feedback can be found in the document.
