This publication focuses on newly released data on the nature of violent crime for the year ending March 2018. Contextual information on trends in violent crime is also presented. To ensure consistency with “nature of crime” data, these figures cover the period up to the year ending March 2018. It is important to note that these are not the latest figures on trends in violent crime. Figures covering later periods have been published in the Crime in England and Wales (CSEW) quarterly statistical bulletin.

Violent crime covers a broad range of offences and CSEW estimates indicate that over half (53%) of all violence measured by the survey resulted in no injury to the victim. In cases involving injury, most were assaults with minor injuries, such as scratches or bruises.

Over the last two decades the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) has shown long-term reductions in estimates of violent crime. Victimisation rates decreased from 4.7% of adults being a victim of violent crime in 1995 to 1.7% in the year ending March 2018. However, over the last four years levels of violent crime measured by the CSEW have remained fairly flat, indicating a change in the previous downward trend.

A summary of violent crime from the year ending March 2017 Crime Survey for England and Wales and police recorded crime.

Main points
  • The Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) is the preferred measure of trends in the prevalence of violent crime since this is unaffected by changes in police activity, recording practices and propensity of victims to report such crimes.
  • The estimated number of CSEW violent crime incidents was 1.2 million in the year ending March 2017, showing no statistically significant change from the previous year.
  • Longer term there has been a statistically significant decrease of 68% from the peak of 3.8 million incidents in 1995.
  • Victimisation rates have declined in line with this, with 1.7% of adults aged 16 and over being a victim of violent crime in the 12 months prior to interview in the year ending March 2017 CSEW, compared with 4.8% in 1995.
  • Violence without injury accounted for around half (53%) of all CSEW violent incidents, while the higher harm crimes of wounding and assault with minor injury accounted for 24% and 23% respectively.
  • The CSEW showed that more than half of victims (57%) did not report their experiences to the police.
  • Improvements in crime recording processes by the police are thought to be the main driver of a rise in the number of violence against the person offences recorded by the police.
