Household crime in the Crime Victimisation Survey refers to crimes, or offences, that were committed with the aim/intention of depriving a person of, or damaging, their personal property.

The types of household crime included in the Crime Victimisation Survey are break-in, attempted break-in, motor vehicle theft, theft of property from a motor vehicle, malicious property damage and other types of theft (see Diagram 3). When referring to victims of these types of crime, it is the household as a whole that is considered the victim, rather than a specific individual within the household.
