1. It is not possible for Strathclyde to link the crimes recorded to any nominal recorded as involved in the incident. Although someone is the victim of a domestic incident, it is possible that they are not the victim of the main crime, therefore the data for Strathclyde linking gender with crime, should be treated with caution.
