Crime and Safety Survey

Approval has been granted to conduct the next national Crime and Safety Survey in April 2002. The core data items to be collected will be as in previous surveys: victimisation and reporting rates for break-in, attempted break-in and car theft for households, and robbery, assault and sexual assault for individuals. The possibility of extending sexual assault data to adult males, previously collected only for females aged 18 or over, is being investigated.

A small number of new data items will be included, replacing non-core items that were collected in 1998. New items to be tested include: fear of crime, what happened after the crime was reported to police, offender characteristics and seriousness of the incident.

Output requirements for the survey are also currently being considered. It is likely that there will be an initial release of key data items, followed by a publication containing more detailed analysis. A confidentialised unit record file will also be produced. If you are interested in the output from this survey, please contact Carol Soloff on (03) 9615 7384. The main features section of the current issue can be found on the ABS web site by clicking on the following link, Crime and Safety, Australia (ABS Cat. No. 4509.0).
