The statistics contained in these datasets reflect the number of incidents and crimes with a domestic abuse motivation reported to and recorded by the police. A crime will be recorded as domestic abuse where it meets the definition outlined at the following link https://www.psni.police.uk/globalassets/inside-the-psni/our-statistics/domestic-abuse-statistics/domestic_abuse_definition.pdf. Domestic abuse crimes are classified according to the Home Office Counting Rules and form a subset of the overall police recorded crime statistics. Not all domestic abuse incidents will result in the recording of a crime. Whilst not directly comparable with police domestic abuse statistics, the Northern Ireland Crime Survey provides estimates of the level of under-reporting of domestic abuse. For further information on the collation of domestic abuse statistics, data quality and what constitutes an incident and a crime please refer to Section 5 in the User Guide to Police Recorded Crime Statistics in Northern Ireland, https://www.psni.police.uk/globalassets/inside-the-psni/our-statistics/domestic-abuse-statistics/documents/crime-user-guide-updated-may-17.pdf.
