They include information about entry into the system, how young people progress through it, and reoffending. Data for the indicators was provided by the New Zealand Police, Oranga Tamariki and the Ministry of Justice.
The Youth Justice Indicators Summary Report August 2019 contains information on each indicator in the form of an infographic. These infographics summarise data by ethnic group, offence type, gender and Police District.
More detailed information on all indicators is available in the Youth Justice Indicators August 2019 Workbook. This includes information by age and offence seriousness, as well as data on all dimensions over time.
