Previously: National Crime Statistics (ISSN: 1320-6532)

Contains uniform national crime statistics relating to a selected range of offences that have become known to and recorded by police. The statistics provide indicators of the level and nature of recorded crime in Australia and a basis for measuring change over time.

National crime statistics are compiled on a victim basis and measure the number of victims for each offence category rather than the breaches of criminal law. This publication provides a breakdown of the offences by victim details (age of victim, sex of victim, relationship of offender to victim) and includes type of location, use of weapon, and outcome of police investigations statistics. As the national collection progressively expands, future publications will provide additional details on reported offences.

Companion tables with detailed state/territory information are available separately. Price on application.
