Data reports contain aggregate, statistical information and do not contain any identifying details or attached case documentation.
Once your request is received, the NCIS will assess it and contact you to clarify any information. The release of all data reports is subject to the approval of the relevant State or Chief Coroner(s). The NCIS will facilitate this approval process on your behalf. The NCIS reserves the right to group certain data breakdowns to ensure the information is sufficiently de-identified.
Once the request is finalised, the NCIS will provide you with a quote for the data report. The data report service is charged at an hourly rate of $165 (inc GST). The fee covers the cost for the time taken to identify, prepare, collate and analyse the data. In the event that data is unable to be provided, the NCIS will notify you as soon as possible and any fees pertaining to work undertaken on the request will be waived.
Once acceptance of the quote has been received in writing, there is a minimum three week turnaround for the delivery of the data report. This includes the time taken to conduct searches of the database, manually review cases, compile the data into a report and seek the requisite approvals. The final report will be delivered as a PDF.
