National sources of information about crime show considerable differences in approach and coverage, which means that the measurement of crime trends at European Union level is still at an early stage. Nevertheless, this publication tries to provide an overall picture. The figures are based largely on numbers of crimes reported by the police. These have been updated to 2007 and revised in some cases.
