Australian and New Zealand Standard Offence Classification

The Australian and New Zealand Standard Offence Classification (ANZSOC) has been developed for use in Australia and New Zealand for the production and analysis of crime and justice statistics.

The objective of the classification is to provide a uniform national statistical framework for classifying offences for use by justice agencies and other persons and agencies with an interest in crime and justice issues.

The full classification can be downloaded from the Australian Bureau of Statistics website: ANZSOC ABS Cat. no. 1234.0.

An extension of this classification has been developed for use by Queensland agencies when more detail is needed. See the entry for QASOC.
