The Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) conducts research and evaluation to support evidence based crime and justice policy and practice in Victoria.
The CSA's Research Agenda 2015 - 17 outlines priority areas for CSA research over the next two years.
Research agenda framework
The CSA will focus its research activities on themes such as recidivism and re-victimisation, co-occurrence where individuals are involved in more than one type of offending, individual changes in offending over time, and place-based analysis of where crime occurs.
Key focus areas for research throughout 2015 - 17 are:
- Family violence.
- Drug and alcohol use and its relationship with crime.
- Sexual offences and offending.
- Koori over-representation in the justice system.
