    • What are the experiences of assault by men and women of different ages?
    • How do the demographic characteristics of victims who did and did not tell police about their crime differ?
    • What are the socio-demographic characteristics of victims who experienced multiple incidents of assault in the last 12 months?
    • What is the relationship between household income and experience of break-in or attempted break-in?
