This Home Office document reports on the findings from the British Crime Survey for the year ending December 2009. The report gives estimates of victimisation of children aged 10 to 15 years resident in households in England and Wales and finds that up to a quarter of children have been victims of crime. The survey also provides data to assist in understanding the nature and circumstances of crimes experienced by children aged 10 to 15. This is the first full attempt in the UK to work out how many children aged between 10 and 15 experience crime.
