Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "In 2015, the CSO published a Review of the Quality of Crime Statistics. The CSO then recommenced publishing recorded crime statistics but included caveats in relation to the quality of the underlying data. The new classification statistics Under Reservation has been applied to reflect the fact that there are data quality issues in the underlying sources used to compile these statistics. The statistics Under Reservation categorization will remain in place until such time as the CSO is satisfied that the level of accuracy and completeness of the underlying data is of sufficient quality."
