9.10 Relative balances and flow for year ending 2007-06-30


Notes: The excess of starts over ends for the year equals the increase in the balance from one year to the next. Also the table above does not include the minor categories of "Other release", "Other community" or "Extended supervision".

To understand the work and resources required of Corrections, one needs to be aware of both the balances and throughputs that define the work Corrections is directed to manage. For example, from the table above one can see that in terms of throughput, remand in custody starts are more frequent than prison sentence starts, though in terms of prison cell requirements, the opposite applies.
