1. Estimated population as at mid year 2009 (General Register Office for Scotland)

2. Different police forces record domestic abuse information in differing ways. Police practice in deciding when behaviour justifies the recording of a crime or offence may also differ.

These differences influence the proportion of incidents which lead to the recording of a crime or offence, as well as the proportion of crimes and offences reported to the procurator fiscal
