Victimisation from personal crime in Queensland (report)

Last reviewed

The Victimisation from personal crime in Queensland research report shows how the prevalence of victimisation and revictimisation differs across different demographic groups. Analyses show that:

  • the rate of victimisation from personal crime (such as assault, robbery, sexual offences and homicide) decreased in Queensland, when comparing 2008–09 and 2018–19
  • victimisation is a gendered phenomenon, with female victims more likely than male victims to experience revictimisation and repeat victimisation (revictimisation including a different offender)
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples (and females especially) are overrepresented as victims of personal crime, and among those who experience revictimisation
  • the time between victimisations was shorter for people revictimised by the same offender (repeat victimisation) than those revictimised by a different offender.
