Crime and disabled people report data

Supporting data for the crime and disabled people report.

Supporting data for research report 103 - Crime and disabled people: measures of disability-related harassment.

This report provides the latest data for England, Wales and, where possible, Scotland against the following Manifesto for Change measures, with analysis of change over time:

  • measure 1: number of victims of hate crimes
  • measure 2: proportion of disability-related crime incidents reported to the police
  • measure 4: satisfaction with police handling of crime incidents
  • measure 5: experience of any crime in the previous 12 months
  • measure 6: worry about being a victim of crime

The remaining measure, measure 3: reasons why the police did not come to know about the matter, has been excluded from the analysis as the survey question needed to collect this data has not been asked since 2011 to 2012.
