The Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (and its predecessor the Scottish Crime Survey) is a large-scale national survey of crime victimisation carried out across Scotland. In recent years, it has become one of the Scottish Government’s flagship social surveys, but it has a limited set of regular users.

As part of an event to raise awareness and knowledge about the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (the Scottish equivalent of the Crime Survey for England and Wales – CSEW – which Kantar Public also deliver), Kantar Public Edinburgh’s Senior Associate Director Leon Page will be speaking alongside colleagues from Scottish Government Justice Analytical Services division and the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) at a session organised by the Applied Quantitative Methods Network (AQMeN). The session will introduce the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (SCJS) and include a detailed introduction to the background, design and methodology of the survey, and why it is important in policy terms. This will be followed by three presentations from expert users of the SCJS, who will talk about how they have used the data to investigate important topics for both policy and theory.
