Statistics on crime recorded by the police, on crime and perceptions from the British Crime Survey and on crime and criminal justice from Eurostat include data for Wales and Welsh police force areas, England and English Government Office Regions and other countries for the financial year 2007-08.
The charts showing international comparisons have been removed from this bulletin following a review of guidance issued by Eurostat. The guidance highlighted the substantial differences in the way crimes are recorded in different countries and advised that comparisons are only made in terms of trends over time and not in crime levels. A statistical article on international comparisons, following the Eurostat guidance, will be published in September 2009.
