Crime does not affect all Australians in a uniform fashion. Various groups within the population experience higher levels of crime than others, and where people live may affect their experience of crime.

Areas with high crime rates tend to have interrelated problems of social disadvantage such as low income, high unemployment, low levels of educational attainment, family relationship problems and high levels of drug use.
