Notes about the data.
  1. Data is sourced from data.police.uk who say this data is subject to alteration, and locations are approximated.
  2. Minor discrepancies in per-area totals between the police mapping tool and that shown here are usually because a crimes anonymised location is given as the middle of a public road forming the boundary between two areas.
  3. Changes in crime numbers may be artefactual; a change in category definitions or reporting protocols, for example.
  4. Data may be released with more than a months delay. The data shown here is the most recently released at the time of publication.
  5. Police neighbourhood boundaries may change each month and are not the same as ward boundaries. This article uses the more stable ward boundaries.
