This Report examines patterns of federal sentencing disparity among white and black offenders, by sentence received, and looks at judicial variation in sentencing since Booker v.

Collating Longitudinal Data on Crime, Victimization and Social Attitudes in England and Wales:

A recent article in the British Journal of Criminology, authored by Will Jennings et al.. Abstract: Exploring long-term trends in crime and criminal justice is a multifaceted exercise. This article introduces the construction and methodological benefits of a series of new data sets that amalgamate approximately 30 years of public data on crime, victimization, fear of crime, social and political attitudes with national socio-economic indicators in England and Wales. The data operate at both an aggregate and individual level and will be available for public use (and modification) from autumn 2015. Here, we outline the contours and contents of the data set and highlight the importance of using longitudinal data in exploring theoretical and empirical questions about crime, victimization and social attitudes.

New resource for quantitative criminology – data set of the first EU-wide survey on violence against women The dataset of the first EU-wide survey on violence against women is now accessible for further use by researchers. The survey – carried out by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) in 2012 – interviewed 42,000 women in the 28 European Union Member States based on a representative, random (probability) sample. The survey collected data on women’s experience of physical, sexual and psychological violence, sexual harassment, stalking and violence in childhood, among other issues. The dataset of the FRA violence against women survey is stored with the UK Data Service, and it is available free of charge – see the UK Data Service website to find a description of the FRA violence against women survey dataset and the accompanying documents. Detailed information on how the data was collected can be found in the Technical Report that accompanies the survey. In addition, the survey results can be accessed using the interactive online data explorer on the FRA website. The FRA’s own analysis of the survey data is available on the FRA website in the form of a comprehensive report. Following the release of the violence against women survey dataset, FRA will be making available the datasets from its other surveys over the coming months. In each case FRA will closely examine the datasets to ensure the anonymity of respondents.
