[1] Due to small cell sizes, an analysis of MSC by type of offence (e.g. assault or break and enter), age and gender was not conducted. Further, the analysis of MSC involves much smaller numbers in comparison to MSO; hence, the figures in this section are more susceptible to large fluctuations when calculating proportions (they are more volatile).
