No graph for personal crimes in the Australian Capital Territory is presented, as no fitted functions or data series met the criteria for inclusion.

HOW HAVE HOUSEHOLD CRIME VICTIMISATION RATES CHANGED OVER TIME?

Although no fitted functions that met the inclusion criteria were identified for malicious property damage in the Australian Capital Territory, when undertaking significance testing (comparing two time points) the victimisation rate for malicious property damage was significantly lower in 2016-17 (6.3%) compared to 2008-09 (15.3%).

No fitted functions that met the inclusion criteria were identified for theft from a motor vehicle in the Australian Capital Territory, nor was there any significant difference in the victimisation rate for theft from a motor vehicle between 2008-09 and 2016-17.
