The Ministry of Justice publishes information on convictions in England and Wales, up to December 2018. This information, by sex, court and offence group, can be found in the Prosecutions and Convictions tool, available at:

  • Filter ‘Convicted/ Not convicted’ to ’01: Convicted’.

  • Drag the ‘Offence Group’ variable from the rows field to the filters field and filter to ’01: Violence against the person’.

  • Drag the ‘Court type’ variable to the rows field.

  • Drag the ‘Sex’ variable to the rows field (beneath ‘Court type’).

    Proportions of males and females found guilty can be calculated by dividing the number of male or female offenders by the total (excluding those where sex is not known and companies, public bodies, etc).
