The Magistrates' and Children's Courts data include defendants finalised for all states and territories except New South Wales where finalised appearances are provided instead. This means that where charges are finalised at different court appearances in the same case for a defendant, these are counted as finalised defendants at each appearance rather than being aggregated as a single finalised defendant at the latest charge finalisation date. This counting method may result in higher population counts for New South Wales.
Queensland's finalised defendant count for the Higher, Magistrates' and Children's Criminal Courts may be undercounted. This small undercount (less than 1%) is due to an internal business process that results in a lag in the verification of finalised defendant records included in data supplied for the Criminal Courts publication.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
