Data Comic: How Crime has Changed in Scotland

Findings from the Edinburgh Study have been featured in a new Data Comic called ‘How Crime has Changed in Scotland’, produced by Professor Susan McVie, Co-Director of the Study.

The findings show how the levels of offending amongst young people have changed over time, how policing impacts on young people and the role of poverty in determining who gets caught up in the criminal justice system.  To see the Data Comic, visit the link.

The survey for our newest phase of the Study is out and already we are receiving completed surveys back from our study members! We are so grateful for the time and energy everyone is putting in to help us with this latest research.
