dc.description.abstract The United Nations Surveys on Crime Trends and the Operations Criminal Justice Systems…collect basic information on recorded crime and on resources of criminal justice systems in the member states. in the Its mandate being Europe and North America, HEUNI [European Institute for Crime Prevention and Control] has analyzed and reported on the surveys for this part of the world from the very beginning. For other regions of the world, such reporting has not been achieved…. The report comprises eight chapters. First, police-recorded crimes is discussed, with separate chapters on homicide (chapter 1), other police-recorded crimes (chapter 2), and drug-related crime and drug trafficking (chapter 3). Also, complex crimes are analysed separately, such as organized crime, and trafficking in human beings (chapter 4). Such offences have played a marginal role in traditional crime statistics, and in order to improve the relevance of the data on such offences, new solutions need to be developed. Chapter 5, shifts to the next stage of the criminal justice system,presents data on responses of the criminal justice system, including an innovation where attrition issues are being discussed. A parallel issue to responses of the criminal justice system are resources and performance. These are discussed in chapter 6 where also a discussion on the punitivity of criminal justice systems is included. Next, a presentation on prison populations of the world closes the analysis of criminal justice data. The last chapter, finally discusses challenges with crime and criminal justice statistics, arguing for the importance of further improvements in the area. The objective of this report is to show potential users of international crime data what they could learn from these, and provide guidance as to restrictions, pitfalls and strengths of the unique set of data that is now available thanks to the countries that have responded to the UN Surveys.
