This Data Insight by Dr Tim McSweeney presents further findings from an exploratory study undertaken as part of an inaugural Data First Research Fellowship. This study drew on over 12.6 million linked records from the criminal courts and prison system over an eight-year period (2013-2020). It examines the extent, nature and outcomes of serious and organised crime (SOC)-related appearances and cases heard before the Crown Court in England and Wales.
