The numbers of subject sample records removed from the National DNA Database (NDNAD) in each of the financial years from 2002-03(1) to date is given as follows. The figures provided are for subject sample records taken by police forces in England and Wales which were subsequently removed from the NDNAD. They do not include subject sample records taken by police forces in Scotland, the police service for Northern Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey etc. which were subsequently removed from the NDNAD.
(1) No accurate data are available for the years 2000-01 and 2001-02; some estimated information only is available for calendar years prior to 2002. In 2002, an NDNAD Management Information Database was created which captures details of all record 'transactions' including the removal of records and enabled the collection of this information.
