The publication by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) of Recorded Crime statistics is wholly dependent on the provision of PULSE data by An Garda Síochána (AGS). As users are aware, there has been a number of data quality issues identified in relation to PULSE data.
The CSO recognises that the deferral of these important statistics results in an information gap and is a source of frustration to users.The CSO has taken the decision to resume publication of Recorded Crime statistics under a new category “Under Reservation”. This categorisation indicates that the quality of these statistics do not meet the standards required of official statistics published by the CSO.
For further information see our Under Reservation FAQ page.
