ICVS - International Crime Victims Survey
THE EU ICS RESEARCH CONSORTIUM PRESENTS THE RESULTS
OF THE FIRST COMPREHENSIVE COMPARATIVE SURVEY
OF VICTIM RATES, FEAR OF CRIME AND SUBJECTIVE WELLBEING IN EUROPE
The European Crime and Safety Survey (EU ICS) is the most comprehensive analysis of crime, security and safety ever conducted in the European Union.
The Survey, focused on the European Union inhabitants experience with crime and law enforcement, was conducted by an European consortium comprising Gallup, UNICRI, the Max Planck Institute, CEPS/INSTEAD, and GeoX Ltd.
The survey compares levels of victimisation across the EU and measures how citizens feel about their security and safety. It analyses the relationships between the EU citizens' views on their quality of life and the levels of neighbourhood crime across the EU (the EU-15, Estonia, Poland and Hungary) - all independent of actual police records.
The survey was carried out in the 15 old member states of the Union plus Poland, Hungary and Estonia. The study was co-funded by the European Commission, DG.
