Crime Statistics Series
The report is the first in a series of Victims of Crime Survey (VOCS) thematic reports aimed at providing an in-depth understanding of aspects of crime and primarily focuses on home robbery and housebreaking/burglary. It provides statistical measures of trends and circumstances surrounding home robbery and housebreaking/burglary in South Africa between 2010 and 2011. It focuses on household and neighbourhood characteristics that may explain why households were victimized or suffering from repeat victimization, measures likely to be taken by victims to avoid injury during home robbery as well as precautionary measures taken by victims to protect homes and properties after the victimisation experience.
