From statistics to indicators: How to convert information from surveys into practical indicators

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The second Stockholm Criminology Symposium was organised in Stockholm 4-6 June in 2007. The European Institute for Crime Prevention and Control affiliated with the United Nations (HEUNI) organised a number of workshops in the conference programme, including sessions on victimisation surveys. The topic of the safety of the citizens has become increasingly popular, and new interest groups have entered the field. Consequently, there is an increasing need of victimisation surveys that provide adequate, up-to-date and also internationally comparable information on the topic.

We selected three topics for workshops on victimisation surveys. The workshops were named: (1) Victimisation surveys in comparative perspective (Session 25), (2) National victimisation surveys (Session 63), and (3) Surveys on violence in intimate relationships (Session 68). Most of the speakers in these sessions finalised their presentations for publication in this book.
