    Statistics on annual court and tribunal workloads (new business, disposals and active cases), and waiting times to trial/defended hearing.

  • Justice sector projections

    Includes projections of the sentenced and remand prison population; offenders serving community sentences and on post-sentence orders; numbers of Crown prosecutions and appeals undertaken; numbers of impositions, receipts and remittals of monetary penalties to Community Work sentences; and the Legal aid expenditure.

  • New Zealand Crime & Safety Survey (NZCASS)

    Measures how much crime occurs, who experiences it, how victims respond, and people's perceptions of crime and the criminal justice system.

  • New Zealand Crime & Victims Survey (NZCVS)

    Captures the underlying level of crime in New Zealand, delivers core crime and victimisation measures, and provides regular and timely crime and victimisation information for New Zealanders.

  • What works to reduce crime

    We want to invest where it will make the biggest difference, so we need to know what works to reduce crime. Evidence Briefs summarise the evidence about how well an investment reduces crime, how much is spent on it, and whether there is scope to increase the level of investment.

  • Evaluation of Ministry-funded domestic violence programmes

    A report commissioned by the Ministry of Justice into its family violence safety and non-violence programmes has found they are effective in reducing reoffending and helping victims to feel safer.
