Crime Statistics Agency Data Tables - Location Type Classifications

The Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) is responsible for processing, analysing and publishing Victorian crime statistics, independent of Victoria Police.

The CSA aims to provide an efficient and transparent information service to assist and inform policy makers, researchers and the Victorian public.

The legal basis for the Crime Statistics Agency is the Crime Statistics Act 2014, which provides for the publication and release of crime statistics, research into crime trends, and the employment of a Chief Statistician for that purpose.

Under the provisions of the Act, the Chief Statistician is empowered to receive law enforcement data from the Chief Commissioner of Police and is responsible for publishing and releasing statistical information relating to crime in Victoria.

The Crime Statistics Agency publishes location type data for all offences where a location type was recorded by Victoria Police. There are three main location types; Residential, Community and Other. These types are further broken down into Subdivisions which show an intermediate level of information, and further into Groups which show a finer level of detail
