• The purpose of the the Economic Policy Centre (EPC) is to promote high quality research and debate across all areas of economics in a free democratic society.
    The EPC's vision is to close the gap between economic policy and knowledge. Ultimately it brings together economic opinion formers - in academia, business, the media and government - in new and innovative ways.

  • Crime updated to October

    December 9th, 2018

    London Metropolitan Police have included September this time, so a 2 month update for them. Cheshire Constabulary still has no ASB data – 6 months running – and Gwent is missing burglary. Their ASB count is also lower than it should be.

    Something has happened in the last couple of years. It now seems routine and acceptable each month for a at least a couple of the Police Forces to report data that is obviously wrong. I have written to the Home Office in the past to no effect. Better now to write to the relevant Commissioners.

    Crime by the day of the week?

    December 5th, 2018

    An interesting question just put to me by somebody by email, do we have it and which day is more likely to have what kind of crime?

    But we don’t have it, all crime data is timestamped by month and year only, for Home Office reasons of data anonymity.
