Introduction

This booklet contains a full list of the codes used in study output files from the Offenders Index. It should be used in conjunction with The Offenders Index: a user's guide, which contains a full description of the format of output files. The two guides together allow criminal history information extracted from the Index to be interpreted.
Output files from the Index are made up of three types of record: study offender information (type 1), court appearance information (type 2) and offence information (type 3). The codes in this booklet are set out in roughly the order in which they appear in an output file; references are made where appropriate to the position in the relevant record type at which particular codes appear. These references relate to the format of output files created on or after 1 November 1994.
The codes used for a particular record are those which applied at the time the data in question was notified to the Home Office by the police. The lists of codes which follow include any code used since 1963 and which might appear in data extracted from the Index, irrespective of whether the code is still extant. Codes can and do change over time (eg. as new offences and disposals are created and others abolished); some of the codes which appear in a study output file may no longer be in current use. In most cases old and new codes are included in a single list with, where appropriate, the date(s) when they applied. Two separate lists are given for disposals, for pre-1990 and post-1990 respectively.

I. Gender and ethnicity

The one-character code for gender appears in column 34 of record type 1 (offender information). The code is often not present.

II. Grouping of offence codes and disposal codes

The Offenders Index covers data from 1963. There have been changes since that date in offence codes and disposal codes, which can cause difficulties for analysts who want to ensure consistent treatment of data over time. This Appendix gives groupings for codes which may be useful. Sections V and VIII respectively list offences and disposal codes numerically. Offences not on the standard list are not listed but these may appear on the output file when tried with standard list offences.


Offence codes: subgroups
Notes
1. Where a year is not specified, this means that the code can be used in the group or subgroup for all years 1963 to 1993, although the offences included within the code may have changed during that time.
2. Highlighted entries indicate that the year must be specified in order to define the correct offence, because the same code number has been used for different types of offences at different times.
3. Roman numerals indicate the indictable offence group used in Criminal Statistics as follows:
I Violence against the person

II Sexual offences

III Burglary

IV Robbery

V Theft and handling stolen goods

VI Fraud and forgery

VII Criminal damage

VIII Drug offences

IX Other (excluding motoring offences)
