Re-counting crime: New methods to improve the accuracy of estimates of crime

Value

299,262

In this project we aim to develop new methods to combine police records with survey estimates from the Crime Survey for England and Wales and other victimisation surveys. This will allow us to estimate the bias and reliability in the data sources, before using this information to estimate adjusted crime counts and suggest other post-hoc adjustments for measurement error.
