Home Office Science research and statistics

We manage research and collect statistics on crime, drugs misuse, immigration and the police.

The areas we cover include:

  • crime
  • drugs misuse
  • immigration
  • the police

This information helps Home Office ministers and policy-makers address the concerns of ordinary citizens. It also helps the police, the courts and immigration officials to do their jobs as effectively as possible.

We are made up of skilled specialist staff such as statisticians, researchers, economists, communication professionals and scientists all working together to inform and advise Parliament and the public as well as our Home Office colleagues.
