Total incidents of all use of force (i.e., not just CED). An incident may involve multiple uses of the same type of force, or only the highest level used: we don’t know which forces have used which practice at which time.
Use of force by officer-perceived demographics only started being produced in 2019:
‘By disability’ stats were retitled to ‘by health condition’ for the 2019-20 data. As far we we can tell these are functionally identical but we have kept them separate to most closely reflect the source data.
