  • Australian prison trends Nos. 1 to 100 (pdf 3.8MB)
    May 1976 to September 1984
    This publication comprises copies of the first 100 statistical bulletins, Australian Prison Trends, which have been published by the Australian Institute of Criminology each month since May 1976. The consolidation of these bulletins is, to some extent, of historical interest, as it places in convenient form a large collection of otherwise scattered statistical information, but it also may be of interest in that it demonstrates how a statistical collection develops and extends over time. Thus this publication can be seen as a case study of an evolutionary approach to the improvement of criminal
    justice statistics.
