In the future, the Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) will provide access to archived quarterly data releases and annual reports produced by the CSA through this page of the website.
Prior to September 2014 Victorian crime statistics were published by the Corporate Statistics Unit of Victoria Police.
For recorded crime statistics published by Victoria Police prior to January 2015 you can access the Victoria Police Crime Statistics publications from 2003-04.
Due to changes in classifications and counting rules, the data produced by the Crime Statistics Agency is not comparable to the data published by Victoria Police. For more information on these changes please refer to the Explanatory notes section.
If you are still unsure about differences between the Victoria Police recorded crime statistics and the CSA's recorded crime dataset and whether this will affect your use of the data for research or other purposes, feel free to seek advice through firstname.lastname@example.org (External link).
