TECHNICAL NOTE CHANGES TO OFFENCE DATA


INTRODUCTION

1 In 2009, there had been two key changes to the victims collection impacting on data comparability with previous reference periods:

  • implementation of the revised Australian Standard Offence Classification (ASOC); and
  • changes to the coding of outcomes of investigations.

2 From this issue, offence data for 2009 and subsequent years will be compiled and presented according to the Australian Standard Offence Classification (ASOC), 2008 (Second edition) (cat. no. 1234.0). Previous issues of this publication were based on the Australian Standard Offence Classification (ASOC), 1997 (cat. no. 1234.0).

3 ASOC08 was adopted to provide a more contemporary classification system, taking into account significant legislative changes that have occurred at state and territory level since the first edition was released, as well as satisfying emerging user requirements for offence data. Further detailed information relating to the conceptual changes between ASOC97 and ASOC08 is available in Australian Standard Offence Classification (ASOC), 2008 (Second edition) (cat. no. 1234.0).

4 From this issue, victim counts will exclude counts for outcomes of investigations determined as 'no crime', where these can be identified. Outcomes of investigations codes were reviewed as part of the development of the National Crime Recording Standard (NCRS). In order to obtain improved consistency across jurisdictions a new code called 'no crime' was developed. 'No crime' outcomes result when police have determined, after investigation, that an incident as recorded does not constitute a criminal event.


IMPACT ON 2009 DATA AND TIME SERIES

5 All jurisdictions implemented ASOC08 for the provision of offence data for the 2009 Recorded Crime - Victims collection. Introducing ASOC08 involved remapping local jurisdictional offence codes to the new classification.

6 The total number of offence divisions has not changed between the two versions of ASOC, and only minor changes have been made to division titles. However, ASOC08 includes three additional subdivisions and 16 additional groups. A few subdivisions and groups have been moved and are now inclusions in other divisions and subdivisions.

7 The classification changes affect the selected offence categories that are in scope of this collection in two ways (see Explanatory Notes paragraphs 3-10 for offences in scope). Where changes to the classification are within an ASOC division, they affect the selection of the most serious offence that a victim of a criminal incident is classified to. Secondly, as this collection includes only selected ASOC offence categories, where offences have moved from an out of scope ASOC offence to an in-scope ASOC offence, both the total number of victims and the victim count for the in-scope offence may increase. Changes have also been made to the inclusions and exclusions of the classification to improve coding and this has resulted in some changes to the way in which jurisdictions map their local offence codes to ASOC.

8 Table 1 below provides a summary view of the major expected changes by offence category.


Analysis of impacts

9 Four jurisdictions (New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory) supplied Recorded Crime - Victims data coded to both ASOC97 and ASOC08 that was suitable for analysis. This enabled an assessment of the impact of the changes to the classification on Recorded Crime - Victims data. Western Australia and Queensland provided 2009 data coded to ASOC97, which although not suitable for analysis, did facilitate the identification of any movements resulting from the implementation of the new classification.

10 During the course of the revised classification being implemented across police agencies, a number of local offence codes that were miscoded to ASOC in previous years were rectified, thus impacting on data comparability between 2009 and prior years for certain offence codes.

11 Table 1 below illustrates the impacts of business process changes on the size of the movements of victim counts between 2008 and 2009. The components of change in the published numbers between 2008 and 2009 comprise the following elements: the implementation of ASOC08 and the miscoding impacts, the removal of 'no crime' counts, and the actual movement in victimisation counts once these impacts are accounted for.

(a) These business process changes were only applied to the 2009 data. Data for 2008 have not been revised.
(b) Classification impacts are based on the change observed across the six combined jurisdictions who provided dual-coded extracts (excludes Victoria and Northern Territory).
(c) Combined data from all states and territories who provided no crime counts (excludes Queensland and Northern Territory).
(d) Reflects the actual movement between 2008 and 2009 data, excluding the business process changes.
(e) Excludes driving causing death.


12 As can be seen in the 'classification impacts' column in Table 1, the introduction of the revised classification has had minimal impact on offence data. The only offence category impacted by ASOC08 was other theft, resulting in a 0.5% increase in victim counts from 2008 to 2009.

13 The rectification of a number of local offence codes that were miscoded to ASOC in previous years, as indicated in the 'miscoding' column, has primarily affected the offence category of assault (for which there are no national data) and other theft for a number of jurisdictions.

14 As dual coded data for ASOC analysis was not available for Victoria and Northern Territory, the data should only be used as a guide to interpret the level of movements in victims' offence profiles between 2009 and previous years due to ASOC08 implementation. Despite the absence of dual coded data for Victoria and Northern Territory, which also has limited the complete identification of any miscoding errors, where such errors have been identified they have been included in the analysis in Table 1.

15 Table 1 also shows that the removal of data classified as 'no crime' in 2009 has resulted in a reduction of victim counts in comparison to 2008, where these had been included. The removal of 'no crime' has not impacted on the data for Queensland and the Northern Territory. Queensland data are not impacted as these outcomes were not included in prior years. Due to systems issues, data for the Northern Territory continues to include these outcomes. The impact of excluding 'no crime' counts from the data for 2009 has led to decreases in victim counts ranging from -0.2% to -9.3%. Most changes are below 5%.


ACTUAL CHANGE

16 In Table 1 and for the subsequent state and territory change tables, the left hand column of the tables reflects the numeric and percentage movement between 2008 and 2009 data that appear in the published tables in this issue. The right hand column of the tables reflect the actual change in victim counts for each offence group, between 2008 and 2009, taking into account the business process changes implemented in 2009.

17 To illustrate, Table 2.1 shows that there were 419 victims of blackmail/extortion in 2008 and 644 in 2009, resulting in a 54% (225 victims) increase from 2008. Table 1 above shows that there were no classification or miscoding impacts in 2009, however in 2009 25 victims (6%) were removed as part of a change in outcome of investigation coding ('no crime'). These victims were included in 2008. In order to provide a more comparable comparison of the movements from 2008 to 2009 the impact of 'no crime' has been added back in; the result being that the actual movement between the two years is 60%.

18 At the national level, the difference between the published change and the actual change are small for most offence types, with nearly all movements in the same direction and of similar magnitude. The notable exception is for kidnapping/abduction where the published decrease of 28.4% is 9.2 percentage points larger than the actual decrease of 19.2% due to the impact of the removal of 'no crime'. Differences are more marked for some individual states and territories, as indicated in the following tables. Of most note is the large discrepancy between the published change in Victoria's assault data of nearly 30% and the actual change of 2% due to the business process impacts.

19 For further information on specific practices or legislation which may affect data movements or comparability, refer to paragraphs 12-17 of the Explanatory Notes.

20 The following tables provide a summary view of the impacts of implementing the various classificatory changes and derive the actual movements by accounting for these business process impacts between 2008 and 2009.

(a) Victoria did not provide dual coded offence data, therefore no ASOC impact analysis could be undertaken.
(b) These business process changes were only applied to the 2009 data. Data for 2008 have not been revised.
(c) Reflects the actual movement between 2008 and 2009 data, excluding the business process changes.
(d) Excludes driving causing death.


21 There has been a significant impact on the assault data for Victoria through the addition of a further 6,336 assault victims with the inclusion of additional local offence codes relating to 'recklessly causing serious injury' and 'recklessly causing injury' that had not been included in 2008 or earlier. Without these additional local offence codes, Victoria's actual increase in assault between 2008 and 2009 was 2%.
