CSA releases its first Research Agenda

CSA Research Agenda 2015 - 17 released


The Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) has today released its first Research Agenda. The Research Agenda sets out a framework for the CSA's research program. It outlines priority areas where the CSA will conduct and collaborate on research over the next two years.

In addition to regular release of crime statistics and data, the CSA conducts in-depth research into crime trends and issues. The purpose of the CSA's research is to contribute to the evidence base for policy and practice in Victoria.

The Research Agenda has been developed to address the key information needs of Victorian stakeholders, to support policy and decision-making. It is the result of consultation with Government, academic and non-Government representatives, and a review of the coverage of the existing evidence base about crime in this state.

The CSA's Research and Evaluation team has commenced work in key areas outlined in the Research Agenda. Research findings and reports will be made available on the CSA's Research and Evaluation page as projects are completed.
