Comparisons of 2009 victim counts to data in prior years are based on actual movements, that is, excluding the business process impacts mentioned above and in the Technical Note. Compared to 2008, the number of victims decreased across all offence categories with the exception of murder (1% increase), attempted murder (1% increase) and blackmail/extortion (60% increase). The largest decrease between 2008 and 2009 in the number of victims was the 19% decrease in kidnapping/abduction victims, followed by a 9% decrease in motor vehicle theft.
