The following tables show the number of defendants prosecuted by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in Stockport, Greater Manchester, and the North West for offences of domestic violence in each of the five years (these are the years for which complete records are available). CPS data are confined to defendant case outcomes in a set of proceedings. Information on arrests has been provided by the Home Office in the following tables. This information is captured on a different basis, and cannot easily be associated with CPS data.

Outcomes are divided into convictions, including guilty pleas as well as convictions after trial, and unsuccessful outcomes, comprising all other outcomes. Figures are shown separately for male and for female defendants. The North West comprises CPS Cumbria and CPS Lancashire.

The tables also show comparable data for England and Wales as a whole for the same period.
