Abstract

Administrative offence and administrative liability occurs in the social life more often (proportionally) than criminal and civil liability. Several million cases of administrative liability are fixed in Ukraine each year. 

The official statistics bodies, acting in accordance with the rights and obligations determined by the norms of the special law on statistics, such as Article 14 of the Law of Ukraine “Official Statistics”, organize and conduct statistical observations of socio-economic and demographic processes in Ukraine and its regions, including ones on administrative offence in all the spheres of social life. The respective statistical information is provided to central and local power bodies. This information is required for them to implement their authorities in taking decisions on measures to prevent administrative offence.       

The main requirement to the statistical information on administrative offence is its quality. The quality of statistical information on administrative offence is largely conditional on the level at which it is collected. The components of its quality are accuracy, quickness, accessibility for further analysis and use. The appropriate quality of information can be ensured today only by means of computerized technologies based on personified data about offenders, sphere of administrative offence and details of administrative offence. These technologies widen the possibilities for collection, processing, checking and utilization of the information. This enables to move from narrow indicators reflecting isolated areas to ones with the full coverage of information about administrative offence, allowing for comprehensive analyses of statistical information at all the phases of its collection: prevention of offence, committing offence, administrative sanction, execution of decisions on administrative sanction etc.        

The official statistical information on administrative offence is used by many categories of users with various needs and demands: scientists, central and local power officials, employees of control agencies, law enforcement agencies and judiciary. Because it is hard or impossible to meet the needs of all the users at the same time, there is a pressing need in measuring the quality of statistical information on administrative offence by making quality reports. Quality reports are the main source of informing the users on the quality of statistical information, including the one on administrative offence.
