Description

These indicators are derived from the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey.

The SCJS is a large-scale social survey which asks people about their experiences and perceptions of crime.

The survey is important because it provides a picture of crime in Scotland, including crimes that haven’t been reported to, or recorded by the police.

An important role of the SCJS is to provide an alternative and complementary measure of crime to the police recorded crime statistics, which provide statistics on crimes and offences recorded and cleared up by the police in Scotland.

Accuracy and Reliability

SCJS estimates are based on a representative sample of the population of Scotland aged 16 or over living in private households. A sample, as used in the SCJS, is a small-scale representation of the population from which it is drawn.

Any sample survey may produce estimates that differ from the values that would have been obtained if the whole population had been interviewed. The magnitude of these differences is related to the size and variability of the estimate, and the design of the survey, including sample size.

It is however possible to calculate the range of values between which the population figures are estimated to lie; known as the confidence interval (also referred to as margin of error).

Confidence Intervals and further information are are presented in the SCJS reports and Technical Reports.

Coherence and Comparability

Crime and victimisation surveys have been carried out in Scotland since the early 1980s. The geographical coverage, sample size, method and fieldwork and reference periods have varied across previous crime surveys.

Past Scottish crime and victimisation surveys 1982, 1988: British Crime Survey (BCS) included coverage of central and southern Scotland only (c. 5,000 interviews).

1993: First independent Scottish Crime Survey (SCS) launched, based on BCS and covering the whole of Scotland (c. 5,000 interviews).

1996, 2000, 2003: Further sweeps of the SCS (c. 5,000 interviews).

2004, 2006: Scottish Crime and Victimisation Survey (SCVS) (c. 27,000 interviews in 2004, c. 5,000 interviews in 2006).

2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11: Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (SCJS) (c. 16,000 interviews 2008/09 and 2009/10, c. 13,000 interviews in 2010/11).

The SCJS was launched in April 2008, and represented a major departure from the design, methodology and sample size of previous surveys. The main changes introduced with the SCJS were an increase in the sample size and a move to continuous fieldwork throughout the financial year using a rolling reference period for the victimisation module. The increase in sample size enhances the statistical reliability of the estimates produced by the survey.

The design of the 2012/13 SCJS remains broadly similar to the 2008/09 to 2010/11 survey designs, although the sample size and fequency both reduced from 2010/11 onwards.

Accessibility and Clarity

Information is presented in summary reports and background data across many survey questions is published by key demographics and sub-national geographies. Datasets are deposited on the UK Data Archive, and can be interrogated there using their NESSTAR analysis tool.
