"How old you are and where you live affect the risk of being victim of crime. It can also play a role if you are single or not, an analysis as the national council for Crime prevention made by the swedes ' exposure to crime."
"the Crime prevention council, Brå, examines annually the vulnerability to certain types of offences in the National trygghetsundersökningen (NTU)."
"Now, the authority has done yet another analysis of the responses in NTU, and has produced what risk factors there are which influence the vulnerability to these crimes the most. Age, housing and family type are the factors that influence the risk most, shows the analysis."
"for Example, decreases the risk of being victim of crime the older you get. When abuse occurs, it is particularly clear that the young are affected to a greater extent."
"– We have not checked further into it in this study, but one would think it is about having different lifestyles. A teen between 16 and 19 years will probably have a slightly different pattern of life than someone who is over the age of 65, " says Victor Ståhl, investigator at Brå."
"– Young people might find themselves more in alcohol-related environments. Close to pubs, nightclubs and the like can, for example, the risk increase to be subjected to ill-treatment, he continues."
"Even single people without children face a heightened risk of such ill-treatment – which could also be explained with a pattern of life in which one is more out there.

"To stay in a flerfamiljhus is also something that increases the risk of being victim of crime. Nätkränkningar looks is something that particularly affects flickoru002Funga women between the ages of 16-19."
"We are currently working on a kortanalys about just young people who are exposed to nätkränkningar that comes out in 2019, where we will deepen a bit about it here," says Victor Stahl."
"National trygghetsundersökningen, NTU; is a frågeundersökning on, inter alia, the security and vulnerability of the crimes that have been carried out since 2006."
"in 2017 asked a slupmässigt selection of 200 000 people aged 16-84 years, of which 79 933 people responded."
"the Analysis of the risk factors is based on the answers in NTU which relate to crimes against the individual person, i.e. assault, threat, sexual offences, personrån, pickpocketing, insurance fraud, short-u002Fkreditbedrägeri, harassment and nätkränkning."
