The Council of Europe Annual Penal Statistics, better known as SPACE (Statistiques Pénales Annuelles du Conseil de l’Europe) consist in two related projects. SPACE I provides data on imprisonment and penal institutions annually since 1983. SPACE II collects data on non-custodial sanctions and measures since 1992 (annually since 2009).

These statistics are provided by a network of national correspondents working at the prison and probation services of the 47 Council of Europe member States. They are currently verified, processed and analysed by a team of researchers at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. SPACE is a world-wide known project which is a valuable source of comparative information and data used by international organisations, national authorities, policy makers, practitioners and experts working in the penal field.
