Abstract: Current study reveals that the British Crime Survey underestimates the number of repeat crimes that occur in the same areas to the same people. In 1992, the survey reported 63% of all property crimes and 77% of all personal crimes were committed against people who had already suffered such crimes in the same time period. This is an underestimate because the survey limits the number of victim forms which a victim can complete. Current crime statistic gathering methods do not reflect this fact of repeat crime victimization.
