Summary

Abstract

This report illustrates what the Bureau is all about. It shows how valuable social discoveries can be made from a mass of figures. The report is important also because a representative of the magistracy - in this case the Chief Stipendiary Magistrate (Mr. M.F. Farquhar) - was involved in the preparation.

In the report Mr. Farquhar and the Bureau's Director (Dr. Tony Vinson) have launched themselves upon an ocean of data collected from all Courts of Petty Sessions and covering all crime dealt with by those courts.
