Statistics & Research

Management Information Branch

The main aim of Management Information Branch is to provide the Public Prosecution Service with a professional statistics, research and consultancy service.

Currently we have a complement of five staff, four of whom are statisticians on loan from the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency.

In this section you can find statistical information on key topic areas within the Public Prosecution Service. Simply click the link most appropriate to your needs on the menu to the left.

All of our published statistics comply with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics and are produced in line with best practice. Additional information on this can be found under the Official Statistics link on the menu to the left.

Future Statistical Publication

The Public Prosecution Service (PPS) plan to publish a Statistical Bulletin on cases involving hate crime on Thursday 30th July at 9.30am. It will be available on this website under the ‘Thematic Statistical Bulletins’ link on the menu to the left.

The bulletin will be set out in two parts, reflecting the two distinct definitions applied in cases involving hate crime, as recorded by the Police Service of Northern Ireland and the PPS.

The statistical information provided in this bulletin will include caseloads, prosecutorial decisions and the outcomes of prosecutions at court. Data will be provided for the full 2014/15 financial year (i.e. 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015) and include comparisons for the equivalent period in 2013/14.
