Extensive interviews were conducted with 255 victims of crimes reported to the police during 1991/1992 from the cities of Dundee, Edinburgh, and Glasgow. The sample included 35 ethnic minority victims. One of the principal aims of the study was to gain a better appreciation of how criminal episodes affect the health, well-being, and behaviour of victims; and the extent to which victims' attitudes towards crime and the criminal justice system are affected by their experiences. In doing so, this study provides a valuable perspective on the experiences of victims of crime in Scotland. The sample covered a wide range of crime types and outcomes but juvenile victims and victims of sexually motivated crimes were excluded.
