This essay requires you to combine your understanding of research methods and crime/deviance together.

Points for they aren't:

- Dark figure in that not every victim comes forward after being a victim
- Even that, not everyone knows they are a victim of crime
- Statistics are socially constructed. Those in power can manipulate the results to show certain trends i.e. governments do this with employment so it looks like they are actually doing something

Points they are:

- Those crimes that are reported and confirmed allow us to identify trends and make conclusions based on what are serious crimes and how widespread some crimes are
