Highly victimised people

This report provides a statistical picture of the most highly victimised four percent of New Zealand adults who experience 47% of all crime incidents. We define highly victimised people as those who experienced four or more criminal incidents within a 12-month period. In this report highly victimised people are compared with other victims to assess how this population differs and what are the key factors contributing in high victimisation. The findings are supported by charts and infographics.
