  • About this Release

The National Criminal Justice Statistical Framework (NCJSF) discusses the various connections across the main sectors of the criminal justice system and identifies some of the key counting units (such as "person" and "criminal incident") and data variables that characterise its main aspects. The Framework aims to support integration of criminal justice data between the different, interconnecting sectors of the criminal justice system as well as across the states and territories of Australia. It achieves this by promoting comparability of data both within and between jurisdictions. By using common definitions and standards across service areas and jurisdictions, a common language is created that facilitates a shared understanding of the criminal justice system and the populations that flow through it.
