Fact sheets and statistics offer a quick and easy way to convey complex issues so that they can be understood by all.
The fact sheets and statistical overviews included here have been collected from a variety of sources and convey details on crime and victimization. The topics covered include general crime rates, victim impact statements, elder abuse and violence against women and other specific groups in society that are affected by crime.
