The Size of the Crime Problem in Australia


Second edition

The Size of the Crime Problem in Australia, published in early 1987, is a publication which has created its own market and this timely second edition provides up-to-date information on the level and nature of recorded crimes in Australia. Australia is one of the very few countries in the Western world which does not produce uniform national statistics, a problem which is now being addressed. The Size of the Crime Problem presents easily readable factual information on major crimes in all Australian states and territories while explanations of the data highlight salient features of trends observed in each jurisdiction and in Australia.
