These statistics are generated from data that has been gathered from the Magistrates Court of Tasmania page.
Some important warnings and disclaimers on this data include:
Statistics are grouped by matter year so early in the year the list may be empty because all court appearances to date have
related to matters from previous years. Likewise previous years' statistics may change when a matter is brought before the
courts for the first time.
- These are matters referred to the courts and in many cases the parties will have been found not guilty or the charges dismissed.
- Accuracy and completeness of the data is not guaranteed and it has been provided strictly for personal entertainment purposes only.
Some data will be skewed by legislative changes. For example failure to pay a Tasmanian driving infringement on time used to automatically
proceed to a court summons whereas now that will only occur if someone indicates they wish to contest the charges.
- Some charges have different descriptions but describe the same offence, for example "Breach of bail" and "Breach of bail conditions".
- The list only includes charges with more than one count in the selected period to exclude some that appear to be typograhical errors.
Data coverage is from Monday, 2 Jan 2006 to Monday, 30 Mar 2020
