Charges

Description

Charge statistics

Charge statistics measure the volume and type of offences processed by courts. The statistics provide information on the numbers of offences prosecuted and convicted each year.

How data in the prosecuted charges table differs

Statistics in the prosecuted charges table are based on criminal charges finalised in a calendar year. The other tables available provide person-based statistics.

Each offence committed by a person may result in a charge being filed in court. Sometimes one incident may lead to several charges (for example, people convicted of fraud often face a number of charges). Each charge will have a separate outcome and sentence (if convicted).

See Counting people for information about how people are counted in the criminal conviction and sentencing tables.
