As Macdonald correctly identifies, the nature of the ‘umbrella’ term anti-social behaviour necessarily precludes a concise, narrow definition.

Moreover, during the period 1989–91, some areas recorded increases in the rate of crime of more than 30 per cent. While official statistics should necessarily be treated with caution given the multifarious elements capable of influencing their composition (most notably, the ‘dark figure’ of unrecorded crime; manipulation of crime figures to suit police and/or Home Office interests; and trend variation in the methodologies and practices of recording and reporting crime) the evidence of victim surveys suggests that in the period 1989–1993, official statistics correspond closely to genuine increases in victimisation.
