Personal crime in the Crime Victimisation Survey refers to crimes, or offences, that were committed against a person directly, which caused or threatened harm to their physical self.

Information about experiences of physical assault, threatened assault and robbery is collected for people aged 15 years and over and information about sexual assault is collected for people aged 18 years and over.
