The report contains the most up-to-date national figures available on crime and the criminal justice system, or the most representative state figures where national figures are not available. It tries to answer such questions as: How much crime is there? Who does it affect? When and where does it happen? Who are the major offenders? How does the criminal justice system - the police, the courts and corrective services - react to crime? What happens to convicted offenders? What does it all cost?
