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.
