Summary
  • Crime statistics have a wide variety of uses, including the measurement of crime trends and the evaluation of crime control initiatives. However, they can be misinterpreted or misrepresented by the media and politicians. This paper aims to promote a better understanding of the uses and abuses of crime statistics, by explaining sources of crime information, the reliability of different sources, considerations when reviewing crime trends, examples of how crime statistics can be used and understood, and examples of the abuse and misuse of crime statistics.
