The Home Office currently publishes a range of data on immigration detention. This covers people detained under immigration powers and includes information such as nationality, age, sex, place and length of detention, cost of detention, pregnancy in detention and reports made by a medical practitioner under rule 35 of the Detention Centre Rules 2001.

Following the then Home Secretary’s statement in Parliament in July 2018, which committed to publishing more data on immigration detention, the Home Office have since been undertaking a review. This review is still ongoing and will consider all elements of data important to the Home Office and the Public.
