Proportion of people in Scotland who have been the victim of one or more crimes in the past year
This National Indicator estimates the proportion of people in Scotland who have been the victim of one or more crimes in the past year, as measured by the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (SCJS).
Crime victimisation rates measure the incidence of personal and household crimes - as perceived by victims of crime themselves, rather than police records of reported crimes. A high victimisation rate suggests an unsafe community, which impacts on people's quality of life and may deter public and private improvements or investment and reduce the residential desirability of an area.
Further information is available on the SCJS website.
The data on Crime Victimisation Rates (National Indicator) does not contain any personal information.
This National Indicator is updated biennially alongside the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (SCJS).
