This FACT indicates the physical assault figures in each Australian state. The victimisation rate is defined as the total number of victims of a crime in a given population, expressed as a percentage of that population. A victim may be a person or a household reporting at least one of the crimes surveyed. Victims were counted once only for each type of crime, regardless of the number of incidents of that type.

These statistics are derived from information collected in the ABS Multipurpose Household Survey in 2010 - 2011. The Survey covered only selected types of personal and household crimes. Personal crimes included physical assault, threatened assault, robbery and sexual assault. Household crimes included break-ins, attempted break-ins, motor vehicle theft, theft from a motor vehicle, malicious property damage and other theft. The state with the highest percentage is Victoria, at 8.2 percent. The state with the lowest is South Australia, at 2.4 percent.

Low is good
