Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The Crime Survey for England Wales 2013-2014: Teaching Dataset is based on the Crime Survey for England Wales 2013-2014 (available from UK Data Archive under SN 7619) and constitutes real data which are used by the government and are behind many headlines. The teaching dataset contains fewer variables and has been subjected to certain simplifications and additions for the purpose of learning and teaching.

The main differences are:
  • the number of variables has been reduced;
  • weighting has been simplified;
  • a reduced codebook is provided;
  • additional continuous variables have been created (using principle components analysis of pre-existing variables) in order to facilitate their use in quantitative methods classes.
Further information is available in the study documentation (below) which includes a dataset user guide.

Main Topics:
The main topics covered are:
  • experience of crime;
  • fear of crime;
  • attitudes to the Criminal Justice System;
  • anti-social behaviour;
  • socio-demographics.
