Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation - Crime Indicators

The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) was published in August 2016. This dataset contains the indicators that were used to calculate the crime domain of SIMD.

Description

The SIMD crime dataset is a count of selected recorded crimes called ‘SIMD crimes’, divided by the 2014 Scottish Annual Population Estimates total population. It is shown as a rate of SIMD crime per 10,000 people rather than a percentage.

SIMD crimes consists of the following indicators: Domestic house breaking, Drug offences, Common assault, Crimes of violence, Vandalism, Sexual offences. The technical notes for SIMD16 can be found here.

Data Zones where the crime count is less than 3 have been suppressed.

Quality Management

Police Scotland were requested to provide all available geographical / address information, in particular postcodes for each crime recorded. Where possible, they provided postcodes plus map references and address details. The exact postcode is not necessarily required to geo-reference a crime as long as there is sufficient information to allocate the crime to a data zone. Where a force could only provide address details, the Scottish Government imputed postcodes and / or map references so that data zones could be identified for the majority of the crimes. Crimes that could not be geo-referenced were allocated to the council area based on the information provided. The remaining SIMD crime count was grossed up to the council area total.

When looking at crime domain ranks and rates of SIMD crimes, the type of area and resident population should be considered. Some areas such as town centres, areas around football stadia will see large numbers of people in an area at a particular time of day or day of the week or year and an associate increase in crime.

253 crimes happening at the T in the Park festival were excluded. A small number of crimes where the location of the crime was recorded outside of Scotland were omitted from the results.

Accuracy and Reliability

In order to reduce bias against areas that contain a police station, crimes that have been identified as being recorded within 50 metres of the centre of a police station have been excluded.

Coherence and Comparability

The chosen methodology involves calculating a rate of total SIMD crime (by summing the crimes included in the indicators) per 10,000 of population, using 2014 small area population estimates (unrevised). Total SIMD crimes are based on geo-referenced data provided by Police Scotland based on the 2014-15 recorded crime totals held by the Scottish Government Justice Analytical Services Division.

Accessibility and Clarity

Further information on SIMD 2016 can be found on the Scottish Government website including an Introduction to SIMD, Technical Notes and Methodology Overview.

An interactive mapping tool is also available.

Relevance

The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) combines seven different domains (aspects) of deprivation:

  • Income
  • Employment
  • Health
  • Education, Skills and Training
  • Geographic Access to Services
  • Crime
  • Housing

This dataset contains the indicators used to calculate the SIMD crime domain.

Timeliness and Punctuality

This dataset is not expected to be updated.
