Abstract

In 1999 a national survey was conducted on small businesses in the retail food, retail liquor, newsagent, pharmacy and service station sectors. This paper presents preliminary results of victimisation and patterns of repeat victimisation. It highlights business characteristics associated with a heightened risk of victimisation.

This project was funded by the Crime Prevention Branch of the Criminal Justice Division, Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department.
