INTRODUCTION

This chapter presents state and territory statistics on incidents of victimisation for a selected range of offences that came to the attention of state and territory police and were recorded by them in the period 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2009. Data includes: a time series on the victimisation counts for selected offences for all states and territories (Tables 3.1 to 3.8); relationship of the offender to the victim for selected states and territories for 2009 (Tables 3.9 to 3.20); and Indigenous status for selected states and territories for 2009 (Tables 3.21 to 3.32).

As mentioned in previous chapters, caution should be exercised when comparing 2009 data to previous years as a number of business process changes have been implemented in 2009. The size of the movements between 2008 and 2009 published data may be overstated for most jurisdictions. For more information see Chapter 2, Explanatory Notes paragraphs 21-23 and 25-27 and the Technical Note on page 96. The Technical Note provides a more accurate representation of change between these periods.

Data for the offence of assault are not comparable across jurisdictions and therefore should not be compared. Refer to paragraphs 12-17 of the Explanatory Notes.
