Detail

The User Guide to Home Office Crime Statistics is designed to be a useful reference guide with explanatory notes regarding the issues and classifications which are key to the production and presentation of the crime statistics.

Following the transfer of responsibility for the publication of crime statistics to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) from 1 April 2012, a new reference guide is available within the Guidance and Methodology section on the Office for National Statistics Crime in England and Wales website.
