ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
In addition, data on sentence length and fine amount have been incorporated into the main release of the Criminal Courts publication instead of as a subsequent supplementary release.
A number of revisions have been made to the 2010–11 and 2011–12 data (see Explanatory Notes paragraphs 110–115). As many of these revisions impact on sentence length of custody in a correctional institution, a supplementary time-series table (Table 60) has been included in the publication for this issue only.
The statistics in this publication are sourced from the national Criminal Courts collection conducted by ABS and have been compiled according to national standards in order to maximise consistency between the states and territories. The Explanatory Notes, Appendices and Glossary provide detailed information on the data sources, counting rules, terminology, classifications and other technical aspects associated with these statistics.
Discrepancies may occur between sums of component items and totals across tables and within some summary tables due to rounding and randomisation.
