Analysing Police-Recorded Data
Brimicombe, A. 2016. Analysing Police-Recorded Data. Legal Information Management. 16 (2), pp. 71-77.
The quarterly bulletins on crime statistics in England and Wales are compiled from two sets of data: crime survey and police-recorded crime. Whilst the former is considered to give the most reliable trends, the latter has a greater level detail for a fuller spectrum of crimes types. This paper explores the advantages and problems of analysing police-recorded data for the insights they contain. This is illustrated by examples from an analysis of domestic violence.
