Crime and Deprivation

According to the English Indices of Deprivation 2019 Oxford ranks 133 out of 317 districts on the Crime Domain. Oxford is now less relatively deprived in reported crimes compared to the previous Indices of Deprivation in 2015. Three out of 83 neighbourhoods in Oxford, however, are amongst the 10% most deprived areas for crime levels at the national level. This compares to six in the 2015 report.
