The Economic & Social Data Service (ESDS) has launched a new website for researchers wishing to access crime-related data.

Researchers can use exploration tools pointing to key data sources, both survey and qualitative data, including demonstration videos providing talk throughs and example searches on researching crime-related data.

Key data sets accessible via ESDS include:

* the British Crime Survey (coverage includes fear of crime, attitudes towards the police and criminal justice system)

* Crime in England & Wales (published quarterly, covers latest recorded crime figures)

* International Crime Victim Survey (data from EU countries plus some others, e.g. USA, Russia. This covers householders' experience with respect to crime, policing, crime prevention & fear of crime.)
