Case Study

Crime rates in Canberra

I'm studying Year 12 geography, looking at demographics including crime rates in different Canberra suburbs. My teacher said as part of our research we could 'ask a librarian' for statistics, news articles or facts about our chosen topic.

Can you find statistics or facts about burglaries or vandalism around different areas of Canberra please?

As noted on the Library's Ask a Librarian page, we can't research or provide answers to school or university assignments, but here are some suggestions of places to look:
