  • UNODC - United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime

    On a regular basis, UNODC publishes global statistics on crime and criminal justice, on the drugs trade and prices, on drugs production and use. Member states are advised to gather data for an annual Criminal Trend Statistics - CTS and to pass this on to UNODC. Gaps in the data are due to the transfer of information of single countries with the respective data collection by the police and reports of citizens.

    In the study, robbery is defined as a “theft of property from a person, overcoming resistance by force or threat of force”. Robbery does not include extortion and pickpocketing.
