Data

Crime Victimization Survey

The Central Statistical Office (CSO) of Saint Lucia decided to carry out the first Saint Lucia National Crime Victimization Survey (SLNCVS) in 2019. The process began in January 2019. The SLNCVS generates relevant information for the design and implementation of public policies on security, prevention, and attention to crime. The conceptual and statistical design of SLNCVS is based on the best practices and international standards of the United Nations. Saint Lucia is the first country in the Caribbean to publish the results of its official national crime victimization survey, in line with the United Nations international standards (LACSI Initiative).
