The Ministry of Justice publishes a range of statistics in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics and overseen by the UK Statistical Authority. The vast majority of the Ministry of Justice’s statistics are published using administrative data from the IT systems used operationally within the Ministry and its Agencies.
On 30 October 2009, the Head of Profession published the Ministry of Justice’s Statement of Administrative Sources, a requirement of the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. This can be found at:
This shows the main sources of administrative data currently used to produce statistics by the Ministry of Justice. We will expand the Statement during December 2009 to show all administrative sources which are or could be used to produce Official Statistics.
All surveys run under the Code of Practice are published.
