The Home Office publishes statistics on people in detention on the last day of each quarter and on people leaving detention in the ‘Immigration Statistics Quarterly Release’.

Data on people in detention are published in table Det_D02 of the ‘Detention detailed tables’, where the data can be broken down by current place of detention (including Dungavel Immigration Removal Centre (IRC)), nationality (which may differ from country of origin), and length of detention.

Data on people leaving detention are published in table Det_D03 of the ‘Detention detailed tables’, where the data can be broken down by length of detention. Data on last place of detention are published in table Det_04c of the ‘Detention summary tables’, including Dungavel IRC.

Data on people in detention and leaving detention broken down by asylum and non-asylum related detainees are published in table Det_01 of the ‘Detention summary tables’. The latest data relate to the end of June 2022.

Data on people in detention counts the number of people in detention on the last day of the period (e.g. 31 December).

Last place of detention does not show where an individual spent their time in detention. In some cases, an individual may have spent a period of time detained elsewhere before being moved to their last place of detention.

Asylum-related cases refer to those where there has been an asylum claim at some stage prior or during detention. This will include asylum seekers whose asylum claims have been refused, and who have exhausted any rights of appeal, those returned under third country provisions, as well as those granted asylum/protection, but detained for other reasons (such as criminality).

Figures on people in detention and leaving detention at the end of September 2022 will be published on 24 November 2022. Information on future Home Office statistical release dates can be found in the ‘Research and statistics calendar’.
