This page has links to child and youth prosecution tables for the fiscal year in NZ.Stat – our free web tool for creating, finding, customising, and downloading datasets.
The tables give information on:
- the number of children and young people prosecuted (and the outcome of this prosecution) in the New Zealand court system
- the age, gender, and ethnicity of the children or young people.
They contain Youth Court (YC) statistics for 1992/93 onwards.
