This Dataverse contains customised subsets of data produced by the Prosecution Project at Griffith University. The Prosecution Project makes available transcribed court records sourced from Australian jurisdictions from 1788 to 1960. These can include Supreme Courts, Police Gazettes, Prison and Convict Registers which are commonly located in the country's State Archives (also known as Public Record Offices in some states and territories). With the collaboration of other criminal justice history researchers, the Prosecution Project is also facilitating access through this Dataverse to data on penal populations in the convict period and after. For further information on the Prosecution Project, please see their website: https://prosecutionproject.griffith.edu.au/
