A study based on self-report surveys of theft, violence and other problem behaviours among school students in year nine (mean age 15 years).
English summary of Brå-report no. 2013:3
The surveys were conducted every second year between 1995 and 2005, and the periodicity of the survey was then shifted to every third year. The most recent survey was conducted in 2011.
Sweden is thus one of only a few European countries that is able to describe trends in juvenile delinquency in this age-group other than by means of crime statistics alone. The studies provide a basis for studying the prevalence of participation in crime and problem behaviours during the period 1995—2011.
