Proven reoffending statistics quarterly: October 2012 to September 2013

This report provides key statistics on proven reoffending in England and Wales.



This publication provides key statistics relating to the reoffending of offenders who were released from custody, received a non-custodial conviction at court, or received a caution, reprimand or warning.

Latest figures for the year October 2012 to September 2013 are provided and compared to the same period a year ago. Trends going back to 2002 are also presented. Also included are Interim reconviction figures for Peterborough and Doncaster Payment by Results pilots, and employment and reoffending PbR pilot outcomes.

Two consultations are also published at the same time as the Proven Reoffending bulletin, one of which seeks views on proposals to changes of the presentation to the data in reoffending statistics after October 2017.

The second consultation seeks views on proposed changes to the prison population projections publication.

The bulletin is produced and handled by the ministry’s analytical professionals and production staff.
