This research note draws attention to an alternative source of data on violence in England and Wales obtained from A&E departments. The data is monthly frequency, classified by gender and age. The advantage of A&E data is that case identification depends not on the perception that a crime has been committed, but on the presence of injury deemed to require medical treatment. We examine the incidence of violent injury by gender and health region and find that the statistics are consistent with BCS estimates of overall violence.
