Equality evidence strategy 2023 to 2025: consultation paper - easy read

We are consulting on a plan to get better facts, figures and information about equality. The answers will help us improve our plan to have better equality evidence. The plan will be used to develop Scotland’s new equality evidence strategy from 2023 to 2025. The deadline for this consultation has now been extended. This consultation is open from 1 July to 7 October.


Action 4 - justice data

We will get better data about ethnicity from justice organisations by using the 2022 Scottish Census Ethnicity Classifications.

The justice system is the police and courts.

In the summer of 2022 we will check this work and report on how well work is going.

Action 5 – justice data

We will publish information about the ethnicity of people who have been in contact with the justice system.

We will publish the information on the Scottish Government website in 2023.

Action 6 - Scottish Crime and Justice Survey

We will do analysis of the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey by ethnicity.

This will help us to understand how experiences of crime can be different for people of different ethnicities.

We plan to publish the analysis by early 2023.

Action 7 – justice data

We will do research into crime including police recorded crime, cyber-crime and drugs analysis.

We will make reports and publish them in 2022.

Action 8 - Police Scotland homicide data

We plan to ask for past data on ethnicity in crimes of murder and manslaughter from Police Scotland for inclusion in future Homicide in Scotland publications.
