UNSENTENCED PRISONERS IN AUSTRALIA
The preliminary results from this analysis were recently presented at an Australian Institute of Criminology Conference. One of the issues raised at the conference about the analysis was related to the difficulties of analysing administrative data, especially data which is censored (the Prisoner Census gathers information on prisoners who are in custody on the 30th June each year, so prisoners who are not there on that day will be excluded from the data set). These difficulties had already been addressed in the conference paper as well as our presentation.
We are currently conducting further research and analysis to gain a deeper understanding of the unsentenced prisoner population and aim to present the final results in an ABS Research Paper which will be made available from the ABS website.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
