The statistics on criminal convictions and enforcement of juvenile sanctions (JUSAS) and the conviction statistics (adults) allow analyses to be made by conviction and by convicted persons. In addition to providing details on convicted persons, information is available on the offences and on the pronounced sanctions.
The JUSAS record since 2020 all juvenile sentences that have been pronounced on the basis of criminal offences under the Criminal Code or other federal laws with criminal provisions for a violation of any federal law containing criminal provisions. In addition, in the JUSAS, all stays in an institution or in a penal facility are recorded statistically if they were ordered under the juvenile criminal law.
These include pre-trial detention, precautionary protective measures (institutional observation, open or closed placement), protective measures stated in the judgment (open or closed placement) and imprisonment. In the course of the criminal investigation and the completion of sanctions, a placed person can have the type of placement changed. The evaluations cover one year and identify each person once for each type of placement. Figures from the juvenile conviction statistics (JUSUS) are available for the years 1999-2019 and are limited to the juvenile sentences according to the most important laws.
The conviction statistics (SUS) shows all convictions of adults recorded in the register of convictions which were pronounced on the basis of a felony or misdemeanour. Contraventions are not taken into account as these are only rarely entered in the register of convictions. The conviction statistics has existed in its present form since 1984.
