STUDY ON DATA ON CRIME IN THE EU NOW PUBLIC
The study on the “availability, comparability and consistency of administrative statistical data on recorded crime and on the stages of the criminal justice process in the European Union (EU)”, carried out by GOPA Luxembourg, is now available online. The project, which was commissioned by the European Commission’s Directorate-General Migration and Home Affairs (DG HOME), aimed at providing an evidence base to ensure the further development of administrative data on crime statistics and monitor policy making in the field of cross-border serious and organised crime using the available data sources.
The study was divided into two phases: In 2018, we assessed the data availability of administrative crime data in all criminal process stages in all Member States. The second round of data collection in 2019 focused on the comparability and consistency of these data and metadata. The final report summarises the relevant findings of both data collection rounds, and provides the accompanying metadata of the EU and the UK.
