Unexplained victimisation of burglaries

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The aim of the study is to examine what can be concluded on the basis of the (historical) data from the Crime Victim Survey about the relationship between (i) the victims of a burglary and (ii) the extent to which residents, municipalities and the police take preventive measures and (iii) the geographic, demographic and socio-economic characteristics of residents.
In this context the following questions were formulated:

  1. Which (combination of) burglary prevention measures are the most effective in combatting burglary?
  2. Which prevention gaps can be identified with respect to burglary victimisation? A 'prevention gap' occurs when a particular group of people are much more often the victims of a burglary because this group take fewer prevention measures or are not able to take more measures.
