14. The random school child may be the same as, or different from, the random child.

15. Adults who are household members but have been living away for the previous six months are excluded from the selection of the random adult. Children and students living away during term time are counted as household members but are excluded from the random adult and random school child selection.

16. Where the same person completes both parts one and two ( i.e. they are both the household respondent and selected as the random adult) the CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing) script does not repeat the questions common to both sections. This means that these respondents are not asked for the same information twice.

35. Caution around the precision and significance of findings should be exercised when interpreting percentages with a base number less than 100 as results are derived from a relatively small number of individuals, so have large margins of error around them and are subject to large fluctuations based on the experiences of only a few people.

36. Much of the analysis in relation to perceptions and fear of crime, and confidence in the police that is published in alternative sources has been excluded from this year's report - See Section 1.2 The Annual Report for more detail. However, this section does make use of the fear of crime questions as an analytical variable to provide breakdowns on experiences of harassment and discrimination as these are not available in alternative sources.
