Product Overview

This report presents the key findings of the 2004-2005 International Crime Victims Survey (ICVS) together with the results of the European Survey on Crime and Safety (EU ICS). The surveys cover 30 countries and 33 capitals/main cities. Where appropriate, the results are compared with those of the four earlier ICVS surveys. The book presents data from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, England, Wales, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the US. It also provides data from select cities of developed and developing countries. It shows how individual countries and cities compare with each other in relation to crime victimization rates for ten types of common crimes including car theft, household burglary, robbery, assaults and sexual offenses. Where possible, comparisons are also made regarding trends in crime over time in various countries. The levels of some non-conventional crimes, such as corruption, internet-based fraud, and hate crimes are addressed. The report also gives information on related topics, such as reporting to the police, fear of crime, crime prevention measures, and opinions about the police and sentencing.
