AbstractThis study contains a compilation of criminal justice, demographic, social and economic statistics in Australia, collected where available from 1900 to 1980. Overall statistics for Australia are included, plus figures for each of the six states and territories. The majority of files in this data set are of criminal statistics, which cover the following topics: Police, including the size of the police force, police expenditure, crimes reported and cleared, and persons involved in crimes cleared; Magistrates' courts, with total offences divided into five major categories -- offences against the person, against property, against good order, forgery and uttering, and petty offences, plus some specific offences; Higher courts (offences similar to Magistrates' courts); and prisons, including prisoner numbers, prison accommodation and expenditure. Other topics include population, marriage, divorce, male: female ratio, urbanisation, unemployment rate, workforce, gross domestic product, motor vehicle registration, and life expectancy. Other miscellaneous files are also included in the data collection. Data not available on Nesstar. Please contact archive staff at ada@anu.edu.au if you wish to access these data.
