HIGHER CRIMINAL COURTS
Higher Criminal Courts, Australia 2000–01 (Cat. no. 4513.0) will be released on 4 June 2002. The publication presents statistics on the criminal workload of the Supreme and Intermediate Courts in Australia, including time taken for defendants to be finalised by the Higher Courts. This issue will include new tables on offences and penalties associated with adjudicated defendants. While the offence and penalty data is experimental, due to the concerns associated with the level of unknown/not stated responses for some States and Territories, it is considered that it will offer a useful insight into Court activity and outcomes.
