Compendium of reoffending statistics and analysis

These statistics were published in May 2011.

“The Compendium of re-offending statistics and analysis is a publication created to address a wide array of re-offending questions not answered in existing statistical publications.
The main focus of this publication is on the relative effectiveness of different types of sentences and builds on the work of the 2010 Compendium of re-offending statistics and analysis released in November 2010 which showed the relative effectiveness of community sentences compared with short prison sentences. The Ministry of Justice Business Plan committed the Ministry to doing this for a wider range of sentences and this edition compares:

  • less than 12 month sentences compared with community sentences and suspended sentence orders (updating last year’s analysis);
  • less than 12 month prison sentences compared with 1 to 2 year sentences;
  • 1 to 2 year sentences compared with 2 to 4 year sentences;
  • fines compared with conditional discharges;
  • community orders compared with conditional discharges;
  • community orders compared with fines; and,
  • suspended sentence orders compared with community orders.

This edition also includes findings on the likelihood of re-offending in different types of offence categories over time, and considers the likelihoods for different groups of offenders.”
