ISSN:

Abstract

This report discusses the extent and relevance of repeat victimisation in Australia, and how individuals and households that suffer from repeat victimisation are similar to, or different from, single incident victims. The geographical distribution of repeat victimisation is examined, as well as the relationship of a number of personal and household characteristics with both single and repeat victimisation. The likely links between repeat victimisation and fear of crime are highlighted and findings and policy implications for crime prevention that emerge from the results are presented.
