According to the Crime Survey for England and Wales in the year to September 2013:
- Sexual offences recorded by the police increased by 17%. This was attributed by the ONS to the so-called "Yewtree effect", suggesting a greater number of victims have come forward to report historical sexual offences in the wake of high-profile cases of alleged offending by celebrities.
- Household crime was down 10%, while personal crime was down 9%.
- There were 859,000 crimes experienced by children aged 10 to 15.
