Offending, Crime and Justice Survey

Series abstract

The Offending, Crime and Justice Survey (OCJS) which ran from 2003-2006, was a four-year rotating panel study, the first national longitudinal, self-report offending survey for England and Wales. The OCJS covered: measures of self-reported offending; indicators of repeat offending; trends in the prevalence of offending, drug and alcohol use and the links between them; and information on the nature of offences committed, such as the role of co-offenders and the relationship between perpetrators and victims.
