Forensic DNA databases have altered the landscape of the criminal justice system and re-shaped the field of forensic science. Whilst there has been widespread commentary regarding the legal and socio-political basis of DNA databases, there remains a lack of meaningful empirical assessment of database performance and effectiveness. In this research DNA database growth and effectiveness has been assessed statistically from data collated from major international databases. © 2008 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
