MEASURING CRIME VICTIMISATION IN AUSTRALIA
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) produces two key data sources that can inform the community about crime victimisation. The first of these is a measure of crimes reported to and recorded by police; and the second is a household survey collecting direct reports from members of households about their experiences of crime. Neither of these sources can provide a complete measure of crime victimisation, but together they provide a more comprehensive picture of victimisation than either measure alone. Both sources have a number of limitations, however, of which users should be aware. For more detailed information about the differences between these sources and the implications on data comparability, refer to the information paper Measuring Victims of Crime: A Guide to Using Administrative and Survey Data, June 2011 (cat. no. 4500.0.55.001).
