2014 data onwards are provisional.

All children detained at Cedars are Family Returns Panel advised cases.

Some detainees may be recorded more than once if, for example, the person has been detained on more than one separate occasion in the time period shown, such as a person who has left detention, but has subsequently been re-detained.

Child detainees are those with age recorded as under 18 at the start of their period of detention.

The Home Office publishes quarterly and annual statistics on the number of children entering detention for immigration purposes, within the Immigration Statistics release. Data relating to children entering detention are available in tables dt_02 and dt_02_q in Immigration Statistics: July – September 2015 on the GOV.UK website: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/home-office/series/immigration-statistics-quarterly-release.
