Annex A: Data Tables

The following data tables provide data for some of the key measures of the survey, including trend data for past crime surveys in Scotland. Notes on how to read and interpret these tables follow.

Tables displaying different groupings of crime (e.g. to Table A 1.5) have the following structure where each crime group represents a subset of the crime group above (see Section 9.3 of the Technical Report for more information on the groupings of crime displayed in this report):

ALL SCJS CRIME includes all crimes measured by the survey except threats and sexual offences.

  • PROPERTY CRIME comprises the following exclusive groups:
    • Vandalism
    • All motor vehicle theft related incidents
    • Housebreaking
    • Other household thefts (including bicycle theft)
    • Personal theft (excluding robbery)
  • VIOLENT CRIME comprises the following exclusive groups:
    • Assault
    • Robbery

Further subgroups are also shown - for example vandalism is further broken down into motor vehicle vandalism and property vandalism.

For analysts using the SPSS data files (which will be available from the UK Data Service), variable names which correspond to the crime groups displayed in the data tables are provided in Annex 8 of the Technical Report.

COMPARABLE CRIME is a subset of all SCJS crime that can be compared with police recorded crime statistics. This comparable subset comprises vandalism, acquisitive crime and violent crime. Just under two-thirds (65%) of crime was classed as comparable with police recorded crime statistics (Section 2.4). Further details about police recorded crime statistics are included in Section 12.2 of the Technical Report.

Notes

1. Upper and lower confidence interval estimates are based on 95% confidence intervals.

2. For Table A 1.3 and Table A 1.4 (crime rates) for the following crime groups, rates are quoted per 10,000 adults: all SCJS crime, property crime, personal theft (excluding robbery), theft from the person, other personal theft, violent crime, assault, serious assault, and robbery. For all other crime groups rates are quoted per 10,000 households.

3. 'n/a' denotes where data is unavailable. This is used in the following tables to reflect the change from 2008-09 onwards, to reporting on high-level property and violent crime groups, rather than household and personal crimes, which were reported on in 2005-06 and earlier years.
