This is yet another Venn diagram. I have been a little addicted recently. This is taken from my 15 minute presentation entitled "Shedding more Light on the Dark Figure" which I gave on 7th December 2010 to the Crime Survey Uuser Group meeting. They have published it on the web along with the other presentations. They can be found here. Mine is the 2pm time slot.

I have been studying my Venn Diagram in the post one before the last decided that I can improve on it. This is not perfect but it is better. I actually like the diagram without the labels. Perhaps I should enter it for the Turner Prize entitled "Perceptions of Crime". OK.................. here it is with labels.

Posts to do with the the Metropolitan Police Service CAD and CRIS databases have been quite popular so I thought I would share a flow diagram that I have just created of how the data arrive in them. The other two data sets I am interested in - the British Crime Survey and Police Recorded Crime are also shown.
This is my latest Venn diagram trying to explain Crime: how it is measured/recorded and how it is perceived. I think it is reasonably self-explanatory. The interesting bits are the overlaps of the various domains. I am approaching this diagram from three different angles;
- Shedding more light on the "dark figure" a talk I am giving to the Crime Survey Users Group on Tuesday 7th December.
- Explaining the utility of police incident data in augmenting the other crime measures (BCS and police recorded crime) particularly regarding violent crime for a paper that I am writing, and
- My ongoing interest in describing the fear of crime.
