Data source(s) used: Persons convicted for crime with irrevocable judgement: Survey on convicted persons for felony and misdemeanor with irrevocable judgement, type of crimes and misdemeanors committed, main features of the convicted persons and of the sentence.
Other data characteristics: The number of persons convicted by type of crime is calculated on the most serious crime committed. The number of convicted persons by final judgement and the number of crimes is available with reference to two types of classifications. An analytical classification including about 470 items of crime, and a synthetic one, where the individual items are hierarchically grouped in 130 items broadly reflecting the Titles, Books and Sections of the Italian Penal Code. The complementary legislation is organized grouping the type of crimes by subject. The analytical classification of the types of crimes committed is given only in Italian language, as many crimes present in the Italian legislation do not have an exact match in the laws of other Countries. The literal translation of this classification is not available because the meaning of the legal terms translated into English could lead to misleading interpretations. An international classification is not available yet. "Number of concurrent crimes" means the total number of crimes committed by the convicted person. "1" means that the offender committed only one kind of crime. "2", "3", "4 and over" mean that, in addition to the most serious crime evident in the table, the offender committed other crimes.
