Table 9 Demographic, clinical and offending variables for male remand committals taken onto PICLS caseload 2012–2014: proportions positive for variables for diversion and non-diversion outcomes

From: STRESS-testing clinical activity and outcomes for a combined prison in-reach and court liaison service: a 3-year observational study of 6177 consecutive male remands
