SPACE I and SPACE II 2013 are now available online.
The SPACE I 2013 report is available here and SPACE II 2013 here.

The Council of Europe Annual Penal Statistics, better known as SPACE (Statistiques PénalesAnnuelles du Conseil de l’Europe), include two related projects. SPACE I provides data on imprisonment and penal institutions in Council of Europe Member States. Information on non-custodial sanctions and measures are collected under the project SPACE II.
Data are collected by means of two questionnaires sent every year to the Penitentiary administrations and to the Probation authorities (or equivalent bodies of the Ministries of Justice).
Data collection and validation, which involve a multilevel counterchecking of figures, are undertaken at the University of Lausanne.
