Perception of Crime
Following the increases between 2008-09 (69%) and 2012-13 (76%), the proportion of adults who perceived the crime rate in their local area to have stayed the same or reduced, in the past two years, has remained unchanged since 2012-13; the apparent one percentage point increase to 76% in 2016-17 is not a statistically significant change.
