This information sheet present some of the interim findings of the life opportunities survey regarding the experience of crime amongst disabled and non-disabled adults, including hate crime, where the respondent themselves were the victim. The survey found that disabled adults were two per cent more likely to report that they had personally experienced a crime when compared with non-disabled adults. Similarly, adults with impairments were four per cent more likely to report that they had personally experienced a crime than adults without impairments. The most common type of crime experienced by adults with impairments was deliberate damage to their home.
