Scotland has less domestic violence than England: JRF Excerpt 3

domv

I think some eye-catching points got lost in my large piece of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation report on Poverty in the UK, so I’m re-posting excerpts:

Domestic violence is for all age and deprivation-level groups, lower than in England. It would be really interesting to have a gender breakdown for the Scottish figures to compare with the shocking level in one of the groups above – 10%!

    John, am I right in thinking that % ages of offender are not meaningful unless we have absolute numbers to compare?

    E g the 15% 16+ in deprived area is lower than England but the others is 85% whilst England totals 80%

      Aren’t % better to compare a country of 5.3 million with one of 53 million.

      And where are you getting offenders from? The graph shows the percentage of victims.
