United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC): Statistical Data

Spatial coverage: The spatial coverage varies from one survey to another.

Statistical range: Data is available on topics such as drugs (production, consumption, drug-associated crime, prices) and crime (police, committed offences, criminal prosecution, judiciary, prisons).

Periodicity / time series: Data is generally only available on an annual basis. In many cases data is only available for selected years and not as continuous time series.

Charges / registration: Data is generally available free of charge. The statistics on drugs are published in the annual World Drug Report. Data on crime is only available for registered users, but registration is not subject to any fees.

Further information: Extensive statistics on crime are located under the keyword "Crime Statistics" in the United Nations Surveys on Crime Trends and the Operations of Criminal Justice Systems (CTS). The UN requested data from all countries worldwide using a questionnaire to compile the statistics provided in these sections. The data is accessible free of charge, but a registration is required.
