England and Wales Crime Statistics

In England and Whales alone, there were over 2 million recorded violent incidents in the years 2011 and 2012. Three percent from that number were adults. This data is according to the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) published earlier this year.
The bright side, however, is that although the numbers are relatively high, they are half of the violent crimes at its peak in 1995. The CSEW asked people personally about what they experienced and perceived of the different attitudes and crimes plaguing British society.
However, it has been found that CSEW statistics from the survey differ from that of the police.
 

“Though police-recorded crimes are down 8.4%, the number of crimes reported in the survey has fallen by 7.1%. 8.9 million crimes were reported in the survey in the year ending September 2012, while the police recorded 3.8 million crimes in this period.”

The statistics published recently on violent and sexual crimes cover a range of offenses. The CSEW state that “violence spans minor assaults, such as pushing and shoving that result in no physical harm through to serious assault and murder. Sexual assault covers offences from indecent exposure to rape.”
