Detail

The background to Home Office Research Report 33 is that two national Surveys of Commercial Victimisation (CVS) have previously been carried out by the Home Office (1994 and 2002).

The independent Smith review of crime statistics called for regular surveys of commercial and industrial victimisation to supplement measures of victimisation of households and individuals provided by the British Crime Survey. A scoping exercise for a new survey of business crime was therefore commissioned.

There were three main components to this work: a review of previous business crime surveys; a series of consultations with Home Office and external stakeholders to identify key survey requirements; and development of survey design options.
