  1. Notes: Local Authority means weighted by population. Crime counts from Data.gov.uk with data provided by the 43 police force areas in England and Wales. Data from 2001 and 2011 Census is from the ONS. For the APS data we used the special licence dataset. Young Males Rate is males aged 15–39 over population and the unemployment rate is defined as those unemployed over the economically active population aged 16–64. The crime rates in the 2001 column use the crime counts of 2002, first year of the actual crime recording system.
