Research Development and Statistics Directorate (RDS) Publications

The views expressed in these reports are those of the authors, not necessarily those of the Home Office (nor do they reflect Government policy)

The publication and dissemination of research and statistics is an important and integral part of RDS's work. There are a variety of publications produced on a wide range of Home Office issues to ensure that our findings are accessible to all those with an interest.

Please note: RDS no longer provides copies of printed publications, all our reports may be freely downloaded from this website.
