NOTE: Tables A4.1, A6.1, A7.1 and A8.1 - Statistics presented for respondents who gave their religion as Protestant have been revised due to a coding error. We apologise for any inconvenience (26 June 2018).
This bulletin is based on findings from the 2016/17 Northern Ireland Crime Survey (NICS). In addition to describing respondents’ perceptions of causes of crime, recent changes in crime levels and the extent of anti-social behaviour in the local area, the bulletin illustrates three commonly used measures of concern about crime:
- worry about crime and personal safety
- perceptions of the risk of victimisation
- perceptions of the effect of ‘fear of crime’ on quality of life
