The figures in this short article are for foreign national offenders (FNOs) leaving detention in the period from April to September 2012 or for those in detention as at 30 September 2012.
This briefing has been published alongside Immigration Statistics October - December 2012 to provide detailed information in addition to the quarterly briefing on detention. The ‘short article’ is intended as additional in-depth analysis to assist users of migration data in understanding our figures but is not integral to the quarterly release. All comparisons highlighted in the text are statistically significant. We would welcome any comments on this analysis, or suggestions for any other supplementary analyses, to MigrationStatsEnquiries@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk.
