Notes:

1. Figures presented for 'housebreaking' and 'other household theft' are based on the new definition of housebreaking described in Appendix B. Figures for 'acquisitive crime' and 'all household crime' are also affected and differ from previously published figures.
2. 'All Survey crime' is calculated by adding 'all household crime' and 'all personal crime' together, as the different weights for each do not allow for this to be calculated directly.
3. Vandalism rates for 1999 differ slightly from those previously published. This has also resulted in the figure for 'all household crime' differing slightly from previously published figures.
