The 2017/18 figures in Annex table “A1.4: Rates of crime in Scotland, per 10,000 households/adults, 2008/09 to 2017/18” have been corrected in the 2018/19 Main Findings Report (published 16th June 2020) to reflect the use of NRS household estimates and NRS Mid-2017 adult (aged 16 and over) population estimates. We recommend users revert to Annex table A1.4 in the 2018/19 report. For more information, please contact the SCJS team.
