Note: For robbery and blackmail/extortion, a victim can be a person or an organisation.
Some household crimes continued a declining trend in victimisation. Motor vehicle theft (319 victims per 100,000 persons) had the lowest rate since national reporting began in 1993 (637 victims per 100,000 persons). The rate in 2007 was 336 victims per 100,000 persons. The victimisation rate for unlawful entry with intent decreased from 1,182 victims per 100,000 persons in 2007 to 1,131 victims per 100,000 persons in 2008. The victimisation rate for other theft in 2008 (2,324 victims per 100,000 persons) also decreased from 2007. Whilst this rate was higher in 2007 at 2,341 victims per 100,000, it was considerably lower than when national reporting began for that offence in 1995 (2,715 victims per 100,000 persons).
