2019-20 Crime Survey for England and Wales Date published: 4th July 2019 2.40pm

The Office for National Statistics has contracted Kantar Public to carry out the 2019-20 Crime Survey for England and Wales on it's behalf.  The survey was previously known as the British crime Survey (BCS).

The Crime Survey asks both adults and children (aged 10 to 15) in England and Wales about their experiences of crime.  The survey is conducted throughout the year across all areas of England and Wales.  Last year, around 35,000 addresses were interviewed.

The interviewer carrying out the Crime Survey in each local area is working on behalf of Kantar Public, which is one of the largest independent research agencies in the UK.  All interviewers who work on the survey carry a Market Research Society Interviewer Identity Card.  This card included the interviewer’s name and photograph and a number to call to check their identity.

If you require any further information about the survey, please call the Crime Survey Information Line at Kantar Public on free phone 0800 051 0882 during office hours or email [email protected]  You can also visit the Crime Survey for England and wales website:  www.crimesurvey.co.uk
