Data requests

The Crime Statistics Agency is committed to publishing a broad range of free data on our website. If you have a specific data requirement, we may be able to manually extract the data and provide customised information as part of our data consultancy services (External link).

To submit a data request or to speak to one of our staff about what we can offer please contact us at (External link). We will be in touch to advise whether or not we can accommodate your requirements and whether or not there will be a cost incurred.

For data requests that incur a fee the CSA will begin working on your data request as soon as an agreement to proceed is received by the CSA. Then, depending on the complexity of the request, the data will be made available to the client as soon as practicably possible. 

Please note we cannot guarantee short turnarounds in the manual extraction and provision of customised data.
