The 2004-05 Magistrates' and Higher Criminal Courts data have been revised for Queensland, Northern Territory and Australia.
Data have been revised for Queensland Higher and Magistrates' Courts due to a small undercount in finalised defendants, as well as changes applied by the Queensland Office of Economic Statistics and Research to 2004-05 data for counting rules and local offence code mappings to the Australia Standard Offence Classification (ASOC).
Data has been revised for Northern Territory Higher and Magistrates' Courts due to errors identified by the Northern Territory Department of Justice, resulting in changes to counting rules and local offence code mappings to the ASOC.
These changes for Queensland and Northern Territory data have resulted in revisions to Australian totals for 2004-05 data. Caution should be taken when making historical comparisons of these data.
