For more details see: data source and enrichment methodology; data spreadsheet; offence category

In the graph above, those remanded in custody have been grouped by the most serious remand warrant charge (according to the Ministry of Justice seriousness score) that was current for them at the balance date. However, analysis has shown that the charges faced by an individual often evolve over the course of an episode in remand; that is, a person may, for example, be held initially on a driving offence, but this may later be superseded by a serious violence offence charge.
