Notes

Source: Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) for year ended March 2019

In January 2019, ONS published the first CSEW estimates based on a new methodology for handling repeat victimisation. This methodological change also included a small refinement to the survey weighting. These are the first CSEW work-related violence estimates published based on the new methodology. More information can be found within this methodological note and slide pack.
