The statistics contain data on cases referred to mediation offices and the separate offences contained within the cases, as well as also on domestic violence cases and civil cases. Offences under the Penal Code and domestic violence offences are recorded according to offence category and according to the authority or private person making the referral to mediation. Data has been collected since the Act on Conciliation in Criminal and Certain Civil Cases (1015/2005) entered into force on 1 June 2006.
