Scottish Government Crime Statistics User Event

On Monday 6 October 2014, the Scottish Government's Justice Analytical Services Division held a Crime Statistics User Event in Edinburgh. The event brought together both producers and users of Scottish crime statistics.

The purpose of the event was to give users and producers of crime statistics an opportunity to discuss Recorded Crime in Scotland and the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey. There were several presentations and a number of group discussions about the uses, potential uses, quality, comparability, accessibility and presentation of the statistics.

The presentations can be found here.

A summary of user views and feedback following the User Event can be found here.
