To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people were held in each (a) secure children's home, (b) secure training centre and (c) young offender institution in each year from 2002 to 2009; and what proportion of such people were aged (i) 12, (ii) 13, (iii) 14, (iv) 15, (v) 16, (vi) 17, (vii) 18 and (viii) 19 years old at the time at which they were first detained.

Table 1 details the number of young people aged 12 to 17 held in each secure children's home, secure training centre and young offender institution on 30 June in each year from 2002 to 2009. Information on the young people's ages at the time they were first detained is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

These data have been supplied by the Youth Justice Board and 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. Differences in counting rules may mean that figures from other databases are not directly comparable.

Apart from those completing juvenile sentences, young people aged 18 and 19 who are sent to custody are accommodated in the young adult (18 to 20) estate. Table 2 shows the total number of young people in custody aged 18 and 19 on 30 June each year from 2002 to 2009.

Information on the population of individual young adult establishments and on the age of the young people at the time they were first detained is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

These data have been supplied by Justice Statistics Analytical Services and 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. Differences in counting rules may mean that figures from other databases are not directly comparable.
