New research: Racial Disparities in Homicide Victimisation Rates: How to Improve Transparency by the Office of National Statistics in England and Wales

last modified Nov 23, 2020 10:37 AM

New research conducted by Sumit Kumar, Professor Lawrence Sherman and Dr Heather Strang, which was recently published in the article, 'Racial Disparities in Homicide Victimisation Rates: How to Improve Transparency by the Office of National Statistics in England and Wales', in the Cambridge Journal of Evidence-Based Policing (2020) has concluded that:

  • certain ethnicities have a higher risk of being a victim of homicide;
  • changing the way that the Office of National Statistics report these statistics could provide more useful information, which could in turn empower police to target racial disparities in a more precise way.

Their research findings are discussed further in this report on the University of Cambridge Research page:
