Accompanying release

These datasets accompany the release 'Crime Statistics, period ending March 2013' and contain recorded crime for police force areas; and recorded crime figures for Community Safety Partnerships which equates in the majority of instances to local authorities.

 

Presents the most recent crime statistics from the Crime Survey for England and Wales and police recorded crime. As announced by the Home Secretary in July 2011 the compilation and publication of the crime statistics for England and Wales transferred from the Home Office to the Office for National Statistics in April 2012. For pre-April publications please see the Home Office website: http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/science-research/research-statistics/crime/crime-statistics/

The United Kingdom Statistics Authority has designated these statistics as National Statistics, in accordance with the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and signifying compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:

  • meet identified user needs;
  • are well explained and readily accessible;
  • are produced according to sound methods; and
  • are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest.

Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.
