PBNI Probation Population

New Methodology

PBNI are revising the methodology for caseload statistics.  To date, statistics have been provided as point in time: a snapshot at the end of each month.  The new methodology provides analysis of the probation population for the entire quarter and year as a whole.  The new method analyses the flow of people in and out of probation during the quarter or year as well as the reports completed for court and victim registrations during the time period.  Please see the publishing schedule below for issue dates.
