CRIMEComparisons of Crime in OECD CountriesThe UN affiliated European Institute for Crime Prevention and Control has recently published the most upto-date international comparison of crime statistics. The figures are based on the UN Survey of CrimeTrends (UN-CTS). In the past the UN only published comparisons for Europe and North America, but thelatest report uses police-recorded crime for 2006 for many additional countries. However, because thereare significant problems of comparability, Civitas has selected only those nations that belong to the OECD.Its members are more likely to have reliable national statistics agencies and to be accustomed tostandardising information. It is frustrating that international comparisons are so far behind, but ironing outinconsistencies to ensure that we really are comparing like with like simply takes a long time.We know from comparisons with other EU members that crime in England and Wales is very high. In 2004the European Union's Crime and Safety Survey looked at 18 countries and found that the UK was a 'crimehotspot', along with Ireland, the Netherlands and Denmark. And in 2007 the Eurostat figures for the 27 EUmembers found that England and Wales had the third worst crime rate.How does our crime rate compare?But how do England and Wales compare with developed countries inside and outside Europe? The UNcomparisons are based on six of the most serious crimes: intentional homicide, rape, robbery, assaultcausing serious bodily harm, burglary and vehicle theft.Ranks out of 36 countries unless stated.EnglandScotlandNorthern IrelandHomicide22nd12th18thRape5th out of 3411th8thRobbery7th23rd13thAssault (resulting in serious injury)3rd1st28thBurglary7th22nd12thVehicle theft14th out of 3518th20thCompared with our peers, the report shows that we are a high-crime society with a particular propensity toviolence short of intentional homicide.

CRIMEAre we a punitive society?The report also allows us to test the theory that our system is especially punitive, a claim recently made bythe Justice Secretary, Kenneth Clarke. The report calculates a 'punitivity ratio' by contrasting the number ofpeople convicted in a year with the number of prisoners in jail as a result of a court sentence. (That is, thefigure includes only prisoners sentenced to jail, not those on remand; and it includes prisoners sentenced inearlier years to long terms of imprisonment.)If a nation handed down prison sentences to a high proportion of those found guilty, or gave longsentences to those given custody, then it would have a high 'punitivity ratio'.However, the score for England and Wales, contrary to the claims of Kenneth Clarke, is low. The claim thatour criminal-justice policies are punitive is not, therefore, supported by the best available evidence.CIVITAS Crime Briefing11Comparisons of Crime in OECD Countries
