The age and sex breakdowns of victims of crime in Tasmania for 2004 show that 100% of homicide and related offences victims and 68.2% of individual robbery victims were male, while 100% of kidnapping/abduction victims were female.

Female victims were most numerous in the 25-34 year (20.0%) and 65+ year (20.0%) age groups, followed by the 15-19 year (15.0%) and 35-44 year (15.0%) age groups. The majority of male victims occurred in the 15-19 year age group (21.1%) followed by the 35-44 year (16.7%) and 20-24 year (13.3%) age groups.

The Tasmanian 2004 figures show that in the 10-14 year age group female victims were as a result of kidnapping and male victims as a result of robbery. In the 65+ year age group female victims were as a result of robbery and male victims were as result of homicide and robbery.
