This bulletin provides an overview of statistics on property crime measured by the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) and recorded by the police.

The majority of crime results from the illegal acquisition of property; making up around 2 in 3 of all crime (66%) in the Police Recorded Crime (PRC) series and 80% of all incidents estimated by the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW).

The reduction in property crime has been the main driver in falling crime numbers since the mid-1990s. The CSEW indicates that while there have been long-term declines across most types of property crime, the falls have been most pronounced in vehicle-related thefts (which include attempted thefts as well as actual thefts from and of vehicles), domestic burglary and criminal damage.

This bulletin provides an overview of statistics on property crime measured by the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) and recorded by the police. The main trends and the more detailed CSEW data contained within the ‘Nature of Crime’ tables, published in this release are discussed. It also presents some statistics on property crimes against businesses based on the Commercial Victimisation Survey (CVS). There is further information on each of these sources, in the ‘Data Sources and References’ section of this release.

Main points
  • Property crime covers a range of criminal activities where the aim is to either steal property or to cause damage to it. It is an important driver of overall crime, accounting for 70% of all police recorded crime in 2014/15 and 81% of all incidents measured by the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) in the same period.
  • Marked reductions have been seen in property crime since peak levels in the 1990s, with falls seen across both main measures of crime. The CSEW indicates that while there have been longterm declines across most types of property crime, the falls have been pronounced in vehiclerelated theft, domestic burglary and criminal damage.
  • Cash and wallets or purses continue to be stolen in a high proportion of theft offences. However, as more people carry valuable electronic gadgets, these too have become desirable targets. For example, the latest data from the CSEW indicate that about half of theft from the person incidents involved the theft of a mobile phone.
  • The proportion of individual mobile phone owners experiencing theft in the year ending March 2015 was 1.2%, equivalent to 538,000 people. This is compared with 1.7% in the previous years CSEW, a reduction of 246,000 victims. This reduction may, in part, be explained by improvements to mobile phone security and theft prevention.

This release is the first of three annual ‘Focus on’ publications produced through collaboration between ONS and Home Office analysts. It explores a variety of official statistics on property crime, and is based on interviews carried out on the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) in the year to March 2014 and crimes recorded by the police period over the same period. Trend analysis from both sources is included.

Chapter 1 provides an overview of property crime recorded by the police and property crimes measured by the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW). As well as covering trends in property crime, the chapter also discusses CSEW data contained within the ‘Nature of property crime’ tables published alongside this release, which provide more detailed information on crimes measured by the survey. The chapter also presents some statistics on property crimes against businesses based on the Commercial Victimisation Survey (CVS).

Chapter 2 looks at metal theft offences recorded by the police in England and Wales over the last two years. It looks into how metal theft rates vary across regions and includes a breakdown of the statistics by police force area. It and also provides a breakdown of metal theft offences by offence category for a subset of police forces.
