Statistics on Alcohol, Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment licensing have been collected on an annual basis since 2006-07. This collection does not identify the number of public houses in England and Wales, but rather the number of premises authorising the sale or supply of alcohol by means of a premises licence or a club premises certificate. The figures therefore include licensed premises such as hotels, off licences and convenience stores as well as public houses.

The Police National Computer (PNC) is a critical national service which the Police Service and many others in the Criminal Justice System rely on in order to perform their jobs effectively and safely.
Vehiclesthese records are made up of the key data items held by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) that describe the vehicle and its registered keeper. This information, supplemented by any police reports relating to vehicles of interest to the police, is primarily used for roads policing purposes.
Drivers Licencesthese records are made up of the key data items from DVLA and record driver entitlement. Their use is confined to roads policing. The system was constructed to enable enquiries to be carried out efficiently and save members of the public from having to present their documents at police stations, reducing inconvenience and saving police time.
Propertythese records are constructed by the police and describe stolen, lost and found items of property that are uniquely identifiable by a (serial) number.
Crimelinkthese records are constructed by the police and relate to serious unsolved crimes, where the perpetrator has yet to be identified.
National Firearms Certificate Holdersthese are records pertaining to the management of firearm licences. They hold details of members of the public who legally own firearms, renew firearms licences, have been refused a licence or had one revoked. The Dunblane tragedy was a key driver for developing the system.
Namesthese records are created when individuals are arrested. They record any charges and the subsequent disposal. All recordable convictions are held on the PNC. In England and Wales, records are retained in accordance with ACPO's Criminal Records Office PNC Data Retention Guidelines (publicly available via the ACPO website). In essence all records are retained until the individual is
100 years of age. Records from Scotland are retained in accordance with their legislation and records on the PNC are deleted in the same timeframe as that of Scotland's Criminal History System (CHS).
The table shows the number of records held on the PNC, broken down by the various information databases, as at 13 November 2008. These figures are not mutually exclusive; for example, the same record may be included in more than one database.
