ADR UK Research Fellows: Insights from criminal justice data - ONS Research Excellence Series 2023
25/01/2023 - 25/01/2023
Hear from three ADR UK Research Fellows about their research projects using data made available through the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) Data First programme. Data First is an ambitious data-linking programme that aims to harness the potential of the wealth of data already created by MoJ.
This event is part of the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Research Excellence Series 2023, and will take place online. Register for your free place.
Three researchers will discuss and share insights from their projects, which cover a wide range of topics across the criminal justice system and beyond. There will also be time for audience questions.
Dr Angela Sorsby’s research aims to increase understanding of differences in sentencing among ethnic groups within the criminal justice system, and whether any disparities are the same or different for men and women.
Dr Tim McSweeney’s research focuses on understanding the nature and extent of serious and organised crime cases heard before the Crown Courts in England and Wales.
Angela and Tim are part of a fellowship cohort using the MoJ Data First magistrates’ and Crown Courts linked datasets.
Dr Katie Hunter’s research aims to increase understanding of how care experience and ethnicity interact with justice system involvement in England.
Katie is using the Ministry of Justice – Department for Education linked dataset, which enables understanding of links between childhood characteristics, educational outcomes and offending.
The ONS Research Excellence Series is set up and by the ONS Secure Research Service Engagement Team to provide ONS colleagues and members of the research community with a greater understanding of how ONS data is being used to make a real difference.
