Advocacy group calls for Ministry of Justice to address the problem of data gaps

Advocacy group, the Centre for Public Data, published a report on data gaps in the criminal justice system on 28 March, which sets out its findings following a review of the ‘areas where a lack of published data makes it hard to answer questions of significant public interest.’ The report identifies four main areas of missing data: remand and bail; sentencing; court operations; and low-level offending. The Centre for Public Data is calling on the government to act on the information gaps identified according to the Ministry of Justice’s obligations set out in the official code of practice.
