Table description


This table provides data on the perception of (un)safety and the assessment of crime and safety by residents of the Caribbean Netherlands aged 15 years and older in private households. It concerns the perception of safety in general and the assessment of crime in one’s own neighbourhood.
Breakdowns by sex, age and level of education are presented. These aspects are shown for the Caribbean Netherlands and also for the islands Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba separately.
The research is a sample survey. This means that the figures shown are estimates for which reliability margins apply. These margins are also included in the table.
The Omnibus survey was carried out for the first time on Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius in 2013 during the month of June and the first week of July. For the second time the Omnibus survey was carried out on Bonaire during the months of October and November 2017, and on Saba and St. Eustatius in the period January to March 2018.

Data available from: 2013

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are final.

Changes as of 4 April 2019
None, this is a new table.

When will new figures be published?
New data will be published every four years.

Description topics

Assessment of crime in own neighbourhood
Respondents were asked to give an opinion on the extent to which crime occurs in their own neighbourhood. The following question has been asked: Would you say that there is a lot, a little or no crime in your neighbourhood? Answer possibilities: ‘a lot’, ‘a little’ or ‘no crime’. The percentage refers to all respondents.  
A lot of crime
A little crime
No crime
Safety rating
The average score respondents gave to the question: If you were to give safety in your neighbourhood a mark from 1 to 10, what would it be?
