Rydym yn edrych ar droseddau a gyflawnwyd, a nodweddion dioddefwyr. Rydym yn casglu'r ffigurau hyn o droseddau a gofnodwyd gan yr heddlu, ac o Arolwg Troseddu Cymru a Lloegr. Rydym hefyd yn cyhoeddi data ar ganlyniadau troseddau, o ran yr hyn a ddigwyddodd i'r troseddwr.
Patterns of crime in the year ending March 2021 have been significantly affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and government instructions to limit social contact. While there were decreases across a range of individual crime types, particularly theft offences, these were offset by rises in fraud and computer misuse offences, resulting in no change in overall levels of crime.
The Telephone Crime Survey for England and Wales (TCSEW) indicated a 36% increase in fraud and computer misuse offences compared with the year ending March 20191 Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW).
Although the TCSEW indicated no change in the total number of violence incidents, the total number of victims of violent crime decreased by 28% compared with the year ending March 2019. This was largely driven by falls in violence where the offender was a stranger.
Appendix tables to accompany the methodology note that presents findings from analysis to investigate whether increases in anti social behaviour (ASB) are a result of an order effect caused by changes to the survey instrument or are indicative of a genuine rise in these experiences.
