Eurostat discusses crime and criminal justice statistics

Eurostat’s Working Group on Statistics on Crime and Criminal Justice met in Luxembourg from 19 to 20 March to discuss the policy needs for crime statistics and the current state of play of regular data collection.

The discussions addressed the quality of regular data collection, possible improvements and the need for data from new domains such as assets freezing, cybercrime, and regional data. Eurostat updated on the preparations for the survey on gender-based violence. The Agency presented some of its large-scale surveys such as the second EU minorities and discrimination survey, its fundamental rights survey of the general public, the second FRA survey on discrimination and hate crime against Jews, its data collection on Roma and Travellers, and its preparation for a LGBTI survey.
