The following table shows the number of young people attached to the Oldham Youth Offending Team (YOT) who have been held in a (a) secure children's home, (b) secure training centre and (c) under-18 young offender institution in each month since May 2005 to April 2012.

These data have been provided by the Youth Justice Board (YJB). The YJB holds data at the YOT area level, not at the local authority level. YOT area data may cover more than one local authority area. Oldham YOT is the same geographic area as the Metropolitan borough of Oldham.

This is based upon monthly population snapshot data. Therefore one young person who is held more than one month in custody will be shown in more than one month in the table.

The data from April 2011 onwards are provisional and will be finalised when the 2011-12 Youth Justice Statistics are published in 2013.

These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems, which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing and can be subject to change over time.

Notes: 1. The data comes from the Youth Justice Board's Secure Accommodation Clearing House System (SACHS). 2. These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems, which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing and may be subject to change over time. 3. The YJB does not hold data at local authority level. However, it does hold data down to Youth Offending Team area, some of which cover more than one local authority area. Oldham YOT is the same geographic area as the Metropolitan borough of Oldham. 4. The table shows the number of young people aged under 18 attached to the Oldham Youth Offending Team who have been held in a (a) secure children's home, (b) secure training centre and (c) young offender institution in each month since May 2005, either on remand or sentenced. 5. This is based upon monthly snapshot data. Therefore one young person who is serving more than one month in custody, may be shown in more than one month in the table. 6. Please note, data from April 2011 onwards is provisional. Data from April 2011 onwards will be finalised when the 2011-12 Annual Youth Justice Statistics are published in 2013 and data from April 2012 will be finalised in 2014.
