Youth Justice Statistics General (2020)

Youth Justice Statistics:

The Youth Justice Statistics is an annual bulletin published by the Youth Justice Board (YJB) and Ministry of Justice (MoJ) at the end of January. It collects detailed data on the youth justice system, including the number and demographics of children (10-17) in the youth justice system, the offences they committed, the outcomes they received, and trends over time. 

Data are drawn together from various sources, including the Home Office (HO), MoJ, Youth Custody Service (YCS), YOTs, and youth secure estate providers.  A ‘Guide to Youth Justice Statistics’ is published alongside the bulletin to provide further information on the data used.  The bulletin is also accompanied by a range of supplementary tables, local level pivot tables, infographics, and maps.

For further information or feedback on any aspect of the Youth Justice Statistics, please contact the YJB’s Information and Analysis Team.

 

 

Reoffending Statistics:
The Reoffending Statistics are published quarterly by the MoJ.  The statistics are produced from data taken from the Police National Computer (PNC), and therefore may not match data within YOTs’ Case Management Systems. The publication provides statistics on proven reoffending for both adult and juvenile offenders, in both yearly and quarterly cohorts.  These statistics include reoffending rate (proportion of offenders who reoffended) and reoffending frequency (number of reoffences per reoffender). Data tools, including data at geographical (Local Authority and YOT) level, support the release.

For further information, please contact the MoJ's Reoffending Statistics Team.

 

 

First Time Entrants Statistics:
These statistics are included as part of the Criminal Justice Statistics quarterly, published by the MoJ’s Criminal Histories Team. The statistics are produced from data taken from the PNC, and therefore may not match data within YOTs’ Case Management Systems. A First Time Entrants Data Tool is provided, enabling breakdowns by gender, age group, ethnicity, police force area, offence class, and disposal type/category.

For further information, please contact the MoJ’s Criminal Histories Team.

 

 

Knife and Offensive Weapon Sentencing Statistics:
The Knife and Offensive Weapon Sentencing Statistics are published quarterly by the MoJ’s Sentencing Statistics Team.  They describe trends in the number of offenders receiving cautions and convictions for possession of a knife or offensive weapon, including threatening offences.  The data includes age of offender, offence type, police force area, offender history, and average custodial length for those sent to immediate custody.

For further information, please contact the MoJ’s Sentencing Statistics Team.
