In relation to the enjoyment of our local neighbourhoods within the Ballyarnett DEA/Greater Shantallow Area/Outer North NR Area, a variety of factors can influence whether or not people enjoy living in the area. Local environmental and behavioural conditions contribute significantly to their quality of life and can particularly affect certain groups of people and places.

For Further Research

The Department of Justice (DoJ) on 26th February 2021 published the Research and Statistical Bulletin ‘Experience of Crime: Findings from the 2019/20 Northern Ireland Safe Community Survey’ (NISCS; formerly known as the Northern Ireland Crime Survey (NICS)). The bulletin focuses on crime victimisation rates in Northern Ireland for the following broad crime types:

  • crimes affecting the whole household (mainly property offences), including vandalism, domestic burglary, vehicle-related theft, bicycle theft and other household theft; and
  • personal crimes against respondents only (mainly violent offences), including common assault, wounding, mugging (robbery and snatch theft from the person), stealth theft from the person and other theft of personal property.
  • Latest findings estimate that 6.9% of adults were victims of at least one crime measured through the survey during the 12 months prior to interview.  This showed no change since 2018/19 (7.5%).  The 2019/20 rate of 6.9% is one of the lowest victimisation (prevalence) rates estimated since the measure was first reported in 1998 (23.0%).
  • Findings from NISCS 2019/20 and the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW; formerly the British Crime Survey) 2019/20 show that the risk of becoming a victim of crime remains lower in Northern Ireland (6.9%) than in England and Wales (13.3%).  These figures compare with 7.5% and 14.9% (respectively) in 2018/19.
