Notes:
1. The offence coverage was extended and counting rules revised from 1998-99. Figures from that date are not directly comparable with those for 1997.
2. The data in this table are prior to the introduction of the National Crime Recording Standard (NCRS). These figures are not directly comparable with those for later years.
