Studies estimating the criminal population have recently attracted researchers. A summary of recent advances in estimating the criminal population is investigated via bibliometric analysis. The bibliometric analysis aims to identify the trends of publications and the top relevant sources and key authors involved in estimating the size of the criminal population. A total of 55 documents published between 2001 and 2022 were retrieved from the Scopus database and considered in the analysis. Most of the documents were articles written in English by first-time authors. In 22 years, only two articles received more than 100 citations from the Scopus database. The results from the bibliometric analysis revealed that the idea of estimating the size of the criminal population is still vibrant and eye-catching. The findings can be used as a reference for future article submissions.
