The Central Bureau of Statistics published today (Wednesday) the findings examined regarding victims aged 20 and over from various types of crime: theft, violence, sexual harassment and more, households with children affected by crime, damage from property offenses and a sense of personal security.
The findings refer to the “corona period” and a corresponding period in 2019. In the focus: 145,000 people aged 20 and over (who constitute 9.5% of the survey respondents in this period) were harmed by offenses of various types against the individual. The most common offense is an online offense, 4.1% of those aged 20 and over indicated being harmed by it. The second most common offense during the Corona period is an offense of violence or threat of violence, in which the rate of injury to persons aged 20 and over was 2.8%. In the corresponding period last year, the rate of injuries from this offense was 3%.
In addition, 3.7% of households indicated that they were affected by a transfer of property to an apartment. 87.9% feel confident (“largely” or “very much”) to walk alone during the hours of darkness in the area of residence. 79.4% of those aged 20 and over indicated that they fear “to a small extent” or “not at all” fear of being harmed by an online offense as a result of using the Internet.
It was also found that 55.1% of those aged 20 and over stated that they had been harmed by violent behavior on the road. 33.7% of those aged 20 and over stated that they were affected by noise after 23:00 in the “corona period”, and 31.3% in the corresponding period last year. During the “corona period” the percentage of casualties from noise was 38.7% among Jews and others and 11.7% among Arabs. In the corresponding period last year, 33.1% of Jews and others and 32.3% of Arabs indicated that they were affected by noise.
