Children, risk and crime: the on track lifestyles surveys
This report presents the results of a major survey of pupils in primary and secondary schools as part of the National Evaluation of On Track. The survey aimed to assess levels of ‘risk’ so as to enable the measurement of changes over time. Detailed statistical analysis was undertaken to provide an in depth understanding of risk factors and their relationship to problem behaviours. Although not published by the Home Office until 2005, the analysis was undertaken in 2001/2 and thus was one of the first studies to highlight the significance of the relationship between offending, victimisation and risk factors.
