1. BCS estimates from interviews in 2008/09 have been revised based on revised LFS microdata and may vary slightly from previously published
estimates. See Section 8, User Guide to Home Office Crime Statistics (2010, http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs10/crimestats-
userguide.pdf).
2. Estimates for 2009/10 are based on incidents experienced by respondents within the survey reference period e.g. April 2008 to February
2010. See Section 2 of the User Guide.
3. No cost includes incidents where respondents said there was no damage to property.
4. Respondents were asked to estimate the total cost of the damage in burglary. The mean is affected by the small number of offences with high
costs and the median is affected by the high number of offences with no cost, hence both are presented together.
5. Values include all respondents who said damage to property was caused, even if damage was valued at zero.
6. It is not possible to calculate statistical significance for the median cost.

1. BCS estimates from interviews in 2008/09 have been revised based on revised LFS microdata and may vary slightly from previously published estimates. See
Section 8, User Guide to Home Office Crime Statistics (2010, http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs10/crimestats-userguide.pdf).
2. Estimates for 2009/10 are based on incidents experienced by respondents within the survey reference period e.g. April 2008 to February 2010. See Section
2 of the User Guide.
3. Percentage is based in burglaries where entry was successful; that is, about three in five of all burglaries.
4. Percentage are based on burglaries in which an item(s) were stolen.
5. 'Electrical goods/cameras' includes televisions, videos, stereos, cameras, MP3 players and DVD players.
6. Categories changed in 2007/08 so findings are not directly comparable with previous years.
7. Figures add to more than 100 as more than one response possible.

2. Estimates for 2009/10 are based on incidents experienced by respondents within the survey reference period e.g. April 2008 to February
2010. See Section 2 of the User Guide.
3. No cost includes respondents who said no items were stolen.
4. Respondents were asked to estimate the total cost of items stolen in burglary with entry. The mean is affected by the small number of offences
with very high costs, hence the median (or middle value in the range) is also presented.
5. Values include all respondents who said items were stolen, even if cost was valued at zero.
6. It is not possible to calculate statistical significance for the median cost.

1. BCS estimates from interviews in 2008/09 have been revised based on revised LFS microdata and may vary slightly from previously published estimates. See Section 8, User Guide to Home Office
Crime Statistics (2010, http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs10/crimestats-userguide.pdf).
2. Estimates for 2009/10 are based on incidents experienced by respondents within the survey reference period e.g. April 2008 to February 2010. See Section 2 of the User Guide.
3. Figures add to more than 100 as more than one offender could be involved.
4. Prior to 2008/09, categories of age under 16 were split into 'school age' and 'under school age'. Therefore, only the combined category is comparable to previous years.
5. Detailed questions about offender(s) are only asked of victims who experienced three or less offences in the last year to minimise respondent burden. Figures here are based on incidents in which the
victim could say something about the offender(s); base given is for the question asking about number of offenders, other bases are similar.
6. The offender-victim relationship is classified as: 'strangers' if the victim did not have any information about the offender(s), or did not know and had never seen the offender(s) before; 'known by sight
or to speak to' if at least one offender falls into either category; and 'known well' if at least one offender falls into this category (for multiple offenders this takes priority over any less well-known
offenders).
7. All victims were asked about their relationship to the offender(s) - this includes detailed questions of victims who experienced three or less offences and brief questions to those who experienced more
than three but less than six offences in the last year. Figures here are based on incidents in which the victim could say something about the offender(s).

1. BCS estimates from interviews in 2008/09 have been revised based on revised LFS microdata and may vary slightly from previously published estimates. See Section 8, User Guide to Home Office
Crime Statistics (2010, http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs10/crimestats-userguide.pdf).
2. Estimates for 2009/10 are based on incidents experienced by respondents within the survey reference period e.g. April 2008 to February 2010. See Section 2 of the User Guide.
3. Figures add to more than 100 as more than one offender could be involved.
4. Prior to 2008/09, categories of age under 16 were split into 'school age' and 'under school age'. Therefore, only the combined category is comparable to previous years.
5. Detailed questions about offender(s) are only asked of victims who experienced three or less offences in the last year to minimise respondent burden. Figures here are based on incidents in which the
victim could say something about the offender(s); base given is for the question asking about number of offenders, other bases are similar.
6. The offender-victim relationship is classified as: 'strangers' if the victim did not have any information about the offender(s), or did not know and had never seen the offender(s) before; 'known by sight
or to speak to' if at least one offender falls into either category; and 'known well' if at least one offender falls into this category (for multiple offenders this takes priority over any less well-known
offenders).
7. All victims were asked about their relationship to the offender(s) - this includes detailed questions of victims who experienced three or less offences and brief questions to those who experienced more
than three but less than six offences in the last year. Figures here are based on incidents in which the victim could say something about the offender(s).

6. Unweighted bases given are for 'double/deadlocks', bases for all other security measures will be higher.

1. BCS estimates from interviews in 2008/09 have been revised based on revised LFS microdata and may vary slightly from previously published estimates. See Section 8, User Guide to Home Office
Crime Statistics (2010, http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/pdfs10/crimestats-userguide.pdf).
2. Estimates for 2009/10 are based on incidents experienced by respondents within the survey reference period e.g. April 2008 to February 2010. See Section 2 of the User Guide.
3. Base is respondents who had made improvements to home security in the last 12 months.
4. Figures add to more than 100 as more than one response possible.
5. Categories changed in 2007/08 so findings are not directly comparable with previous years.
