Crime and justice data

Justice data

The state government relies on robust data on key issues and trends to inform its decision-making on initiatives aimed at improving the performance of South Australia's justice system.

A series of data dashboards have been prepared, involving data gathered from government agencies that helps to highlight the impact of existing policies to date, and help inform the public debate moving forward.

Information over time on the number of prisoners on remand, serving a sentence and discharged, categorised by most serious offence can be found in custody data.

Information over time on the number of cases lodged, finalised and pending in the civil and criminal jurisdictions of South Australia's Magistrates and District Courts can be found in courts data.
