The stalking time series excludes a data point for the year ending March 2008 due to comparable questions on stalking not being included that year.
In the year ending March 2012 the stalking question was changed to separately ask about receiving emails and an additional behaviour added of putting personal, obscene or threatening information about you on the internet.
The definition of stalking changed in the year ending March 2013 to be in line with the legal definitions by referring to at least two incidents.
