Annotation: This report presents recorded crime statistics in New South Wales (Australia) regions for selected offenses for the period April 1994 to December 1995.
Abstract: The report is organized into three main sections. The first section provides an overview of major trends in recorded criminal incidents (recorded victims of murder) over the 21-month period. Figures that show trends in selected offenses are shown, along with an analysis that shows which trends are statistically significant. The second section presents, for all categories of offenses, the monthly data on recorded criminal incidents (recorded victims for murder and manslaughter). There are two tables in this section: one for the last 9 months of 1994 and one for the 12 months of 1995. Each table provides a total and its respective rate per 100,000 population. The data used for the trend analysis in the first section of the report are included in these two tables. In the third sections there are 30 tables, one for each major offense category. Each table provides the numbers and rates (per 100,000 population) of recorded criminal incidents in the 9-month period that ended December 1994 and the 12-month period ending December 1995 for each of the New South Wales Statistical Divisions and for each Statistical Subdivision in Sydney. This report differs from previous reports in that the counting units are recorded criminal incidents (except for murder and manslaughter where the counting units are victims) rather than recorded offenses. It also differs from previous reports in that the data are categorized by date of reporting to police, or date of detection by police, rather than the date of occurrence of the incident. 32 tables and 12 figures
