Consultation paper

Public consultation on how we count Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander status in recorded crime statistics.

The Crime Statistics Agency has today released a consultation paper, which proposes ways we could count Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our recorded crime statistics.

The paper outlines our current quality issues arising in recorded crime data, and proposes three different counting rules that the agency could apply to try and 'improve' the quality of the recorded crime statistics.

The consultation will run until 17 July 2016. The consultation paper and instructions on how to make a submission or supply feedback areĀ here. (External link)
