Detail

The 2002 Commercial Victimisation Survey interviewed by telephone around 4,000 managers of retail premises and a further 2,500 managers of manufacturing premises about their businesses’ experiences of crime in the previous 12 months.

The survey also asked respondents whether they had reported the incidents to the police; the extent of the losses suffered; their crime prevention precautions; and their concerns about problems of crime and antisocial behaviour in the local area.

Findings 259 is a summary of the findings for both retail and manufacturing premises.
