VICTIMS OF CRIME

Sociology Study by Bragg, Young, Slaney & Passmore

(Passmore et al)


Our aim
Our Aim

To investigate which gender is most likely to be a victim of crime.


Our hypothesis
Our Hypothesis

We predict that females are more likely to be a victim of crime.


Background research
Background Research

We looked at official statistical data from previous years and found the following trends:

  • Men are victims of violent crime more often than women.

  • Women are more likely to be victims of domestic abuse. (“vulnerable”, “weaker”)

  • In the following table men are higher than women in everything except for domestic abuse.

This general trend goes against our hypothesis


What we did
What we did..

  • Created a short questionnaire for people aged over 16 to fill in, from this we found which people (Male/ Female, Old/young) are victims of some certain crimes .

  • We handed out these questionnaires to students in the school and also the wider community.




Our findings
Our Findings school across a variety of ages

Victims by Gender:




This bar chart shows that women in the age brackets of: asked.

  • 16 – 24

  • 35 – 44

  • 55 – 64

    Were victims of crime more than the males in these age brackets.

    However in the age bracket of 45 – 54, both males and females were equal victims of crime.

    Also in the age bracket of 25 – 34 males were victims of crime more than females.


Male asked.


This pie chart shows that the crimes males are most victims of are:

  • Assault with minor injury

  • Assault with no injury

  • Robbery and theft


Also within the pie chart, no males said they had been a victim of:

  • Domestic abuse

  • Sexual Assault


Two male respondents added other crimes that they had been victims of these were:

  • Domestic theft

  • Racial abuse


Female
Female victims of these were:


This pie chart shows that crimes females are most victims of are:

  • Robbery and theft

  • Car theft

  • Accident not their fault


Also shown within this pie chart: are:

  • 1 female said they had been a victim of sexual assault

  • No females said they had been a victim of domestic abuse


The fact that no respondents said they had are: been a victim to domestic abuse, suggests that our study may not be very valid due to people feeling uncomfortable about revealing this information.

That being said It may also be that none of our respondents had been abused domestically.


Our hypothesis1
Our hypothesis are:

Overall our results support our hypothesis that females are victims of crime more often than males.

This also contradicts the background research we did.
